A NASA astronaut has announced the release of a new space-based Angry Birds game -- by teaching some basic physics principles from on-board the International Space Station.
Don Pettit used characters from the game as props to explain trajectory in microgravity -- which could come in handy for players of the new game.
He even catapulted an Angry Bird through the space station to promote. A spokesperson said: "Game developers have incorporated concepts of human space exploration into the new game.
"From the weightlessness of space to the gravity wells of nearby planets, players use physics as they explore the various levels of the game set both on planets and in microgravity."
