NASA astronaut launches new Angry Birds game – from space!

By 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

I can't even begin to imagine how Rovio's PR team went about sorting out this stunt, but hats off, it's incredible.
