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.

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

Debut single ‘Colours Fade’ out now. See link in bio. #coloursfade #wavesrushin

My son Sam has shared this beautiful song, “Colours Fade”, which he wrote in my mum’s living room after the last time he saw her - anyone who has lost somebody recently may find comfort in this song

Thank you for all your messages about my mum. She was a force of nature who lived many remarkable lives and will live on in the hearts of all she loved. Sending love to all of you who have lost a loved one recently

I’m sorry to share that, sadly like a lot of people’s mums and dads right now in these days of Covid, my mum Eve has also passed away. Rather than mourn her loss, I wanted to celebrate her wonderful life & the joy she brought to so many
