NASA astronaut launches new Angry Birds game – from space!
By Rich Leigh on Friday, March 9, 2012
To launch the new Angry Birds Space game, Rovio has only gone and got NASA astronaut Don Pettit to explain the physics behind the new game.
From 242.5 miles ABOVE the earth's surface.
Pettit is currently aboard the International Space Station and
demonstrates the physics of the new game by using a plush Red Bird and an orbital slingshot.
I can't even begin to imagine how Rovio's PR team went about sorting out this stunt, but hats off, it's incredible.
