Angry Birds invade space

NASA and Rovio have teamed to bring the bird-pig fight to outer space

If you haven't already downloaded it (I have and it's very cool) Rovio's Angry Birds Space came out today.  Developed with input from NASA, Angry Birds Space will incorporate a number of human space exploration concepts such as  weightlessness of space and the impact of gravity fields of planets - think curved shots at pigs and ricocheting shots off of floating space bodies.

Here are a couple of the YouTube videos on the release:
