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.

Wait, so little green pigs live on Mars? Damn … I guess that crazy one-eyed fortune-teller was right all along. :p

Canada, eh?
They certainly do. Just Google "Angry Birds t-shirt" and you should be able to find one. I have one I bought in a local comic book/trading card shop in my city. I'm a big Angry Birds fan :D
Heck, if you live in North America just go to Walmart. I'm sure they've got them there.

I have one which I wear occasionally, but I've learned to be careful when I put it on. I had it on once when I visited a local science museum. I swear I had the attention of every child that passed me. ("Look, daddy! Angry birds!") I felt almost dirty wearing it.
