Roscosmos will launch its next robotic cargo mission, Progress MS-14, to the International Space Station (ISS) from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on April 24, 2020 at 9:51 pm EDT (which is 6:51 am April 25 at the launch site).

NASA TV coverage of launch begins at 9:30 pm EDT.  NASA refers to this as Progress 75 because it is the 75th Progress spacecraft sent to the ISS.

Progress will use the new “fast track” two-orbit trajectory to reach the ISS, which means docking will occur just over 3 hours after launch, at 1:12 am EDT April 25. NASA TV coverage of docking begins at 12:30 am EDT.
