Angry Birds Space Updated With Curiosity Mars Rover Content

Angry Birds Space has received a new update adding a new episode with content tied to NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover. NASA and Rovio have partnered extensively on marketing for Angry Birds Space, using the game to promote NASA's educational and scientific discoveries.

The new update sees the piggies hijacking the Curiosity Mars Rover and serving 20 new levels on Mars for the angry birds.

NASA is helping pigs and birds explore the Martian terrain and shed light on the agency's missions to the Red Planet in the latest update to the game Angry Birds Space. Rovio Entertainment, creator of Angry Birds, announced the update Thursday, complete with a cast of agency rovers and landers.

Earlier this year, millions of gamers were introduced to concepts of microgravity in Angry Birds Space, which was supported through a partnership with NASA and includes links to a variety of education information.

"Rovio is teaching huge new audiences about NASA's missions to Mars thanks to this collaboration," said David Weaver, associate administrator for communications at NASA Headquarters in Washington. "It's a great way to introduce both kids and adults to the wonders of the planet in a fun and entertaining way."

Angry Birds Space is available on the iPhone, iPad and the Mac.

I once saw an obese man wearing a red angry birds shirt.


He reminded me of the big red bird.

Today I read a post from someone who was upset for no other reason than another person choosing to put on a fun shirt. This made me very sad.
