The pigs hijack the Curiousity Mars Rover in Angry Birds Space for iPhone and iPad

Angry Birds Space, the one where Rovio's billion dollar birds chased their popular pigs clear out of orbit, has been updated in fairly geeky, spectacular fashion:

NASA and Angry Birds team up for the most epic episode yet! The piggies have hijacked the Curiosity Mars Rover -- but instead of searching for ice crystals, they're looking for eggs!

You get 20 new levels of Mars busting madness, as well as 2 more antenna egg levels. Work your way past enormous, explosive volcanoes, and avoid the firestorm of falling stars. And meet the new astronaut pig, whom I'm assuming has all the wrong stuff... Find three rovers and landers to reveal bonus levels, and learn even more about Curiosity Mars Rover and NASA.

The Angry Birds franchise certainly isn't new anymore, but they keep finding ways to give the hugely popular game fresh new angles and compelling new content, and bringing NASA and Curiosity Mars into it takes Angry Birds Space to a while new level. No pun intended.
