Finding My Virginity – my fully updated autobiography – is out today with new chapters about my trip to space, family adventures and other memories I’ve collected since I wrote the first edition. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it:

Great to see @VirginRed  and @VirginTrains  come together to make people smile by giving everyone who books a ticket through Virgin Trains Ticketing a free hot drink until November 30: #VirginFamily

Entrepreneurs make the world go round. 🎈✈️ If you want launch a business but don’t fancy flying a hot-air balloon to get it off the ground, pick up a copy of my updated autobiography to learn what I went around the world and into space to figure out: 🪐

I was once a child with a dream looking up to the stars. Now I'm an adult in a spaceship looking down to our beautiful Earth. To the next generation of dreamers: if we can do this, just imagine what you can do #Unity22  @virgingalactic 

“If Ukraine loses, Ukraine ceases to exist. If Russia loses, we have a completely different Russia.” We must keep this conflict at the forefront of our minds and do all we can to support. #StandWithUkraine 

Inspiring to see brave women and girls protesting in the streets of Iran and standing up for their freedom. Their voices deserve to be heard, and we should all tell their stories: #MahsaAmini  #BeOurVoice 

I have dreamt about this moment since I was a child, but going to space was more magical than I ever imagined #Unity22  @virgingalactic

Very sad to see Mr Trump attack London Mayor on a day for sympathy not criticism. The world needs to work together, not create more division

There are no words to describe the feeling. This is space travel. This is a dream turned reality @virgingalactic  #Unity22 

Great to hear @justinbieber  & @scooterbraun  are latest @virgingalactic  future astronauts. Congrats, see you up there!

Big day ahead. Great to start the morning with a friend. Feeling good, feeling excited, feeling ready. Watch#Unity22  launch and livestream TODAY at 7:30 am PT | 10:30 am ET | 3:30 pm BST. @virgingalactic  @elonmusk
