"Victory Rocket" carrying cargo spacecraft "Progress" MS - 14 launched from the Baikonur spaceport on the 25th of April 2020

One more successful launch from Baikonur spaceport without viewers on 25 April. Cargo spacecraft Progress MS-14 delivered to ISS necessary products for cosmonauts including fresh fruits and delicacies. As well as oxygen, water, fuel, medicines and equipment for experiments was also brought on board the space station. According to the control chart the approach to the ISS consisted of two orbital circuits and docking with the ISS three hours and twenty minutes (plus / minus 3 minutes) after the liftoff.

Roscosmos State Corporation prepared in advance for this launch, before the beginning of coronavirus epidemic. In honor of the decisive Soviet victory over Nazi and Axis Power forces at the end of World War II in May 1945 the carrier rocket was named "Victory rocket". The rocket was thematically decorated in honor of 75 years of Victory Day with St. George's ribbon, symbols and logo of the Victory.

Unfortunately, our team and other lovers of space could not admire this "beauty" in real life on the soil of the Baikonur spaceport. We were able to watch the launch only in the online mode.
