Boeing backs Virgin Galactic with strategic $20M investment

Virgin Galactic has $20 million more to pursue its goal of space tourism with a new investment from Boeing announced this morning. The two companies are both deeply involved in human spaceflight, but in different ways and Boeing seems to feel that its better to join Virgin than try to beat them at this particular game.
VG is well on its way to its goal of being the first company to offer routine, consistent and affordable space tourism, though obviously the last item is relative. Its spacecraft have already been to space with people inside, essentially taking the same trip as what is planned for paying passengers who, by the way, will embark from the recently unveiled Spaceport America in New Mexico.
