After an inspiring inauguration showcasing the power of unity, including @TheAmandaGorman's stunning poem, it's great to see @POTUS immediately putting words into action, rejoining the Paris climate accord & tackling COVID-19. A new day in America, indeed

So touched that the @Virgin_Orbit team honoured my mum by writing For Eve onto the nose cone of the rocket – yet another great adventure for mum! I want to again thank everyone who has shared such touching tributes to her

This is the incredible moment @Virgin_Orbit flew into orbit. What a beautiful sight to behold: the Virgin LauncherOne rocket taking off from the wing of our 747 airplane and soaring into orbit at 17,500mph to drop off satellites

Today's sequence of events for #LaunchDemo2 went exactly to plan, from safe execution of our ground ops all the way through successful full duration burns on both engines. To say we're thrilled would be a massive understatement, but 240 characters couldn't do it justice anyway.

Quoted @HollyBranson

I love the sound of Granny Eve's laughter in this old film. As she said herself: “Life to me is very precious, with every hour and every minute to be cherished and never wasted!”

I've shared some of Granny's wonderful lessons on my blog: @EveBranson
