Angry Birds in Space, As Explained by NASA!


When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut in the worst way. I had astronaut ice cream, an astronaut Barbie, and to this day I still say Epcot is the coolest amusement park in the world because of “Spaceship Earth”. I eventually outgrew my desire to fly far away from this planet, but I still love all things space-y.

And so while I was already excited for “Angry Birds Space” because I like flinging birds at pigs and monkeys, I am extra excited since Rovio enlisted an astronaut to demonstrate the physics of slingshots…on a space station! Whether or not you like the games, you have to admit this is pretty damn cool:

Are you excited for Angry Birds Space, or do you think the game has finally jumped the shark pig? And how badly do you want to hang out and throw things on the space station? Let us know in the comments!
