Mars Rover Hooks Up With Angry Birds Space
It looks like NASA's Curiosity rover has discovered something unusual on Mars: a videogame tie-in with the Angry Birds Space. NASA and Rovio, the maker of Angry Birds, announced a deal today where Rovio will release an update to the Angry Birds Space title, which will incorporate helping pigs and birds explore the Martian terrain. According to NASA, the update to Angry Birds Space will include a cast of the agency's rovers and landers, and will help educate players about the agency projects and programs. The two said the deal comes under a Space Act Agreement. NASA's Mars rover missions are run out of the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) in Pasadena.
