The Angry Birds franchise turned to NASA for the development and promotion of their game Angry Birds Space. Now it appears the space agency is turning to the super-addictive game for their latest strategy to explore the great beyond.
Early Monday morning, NASA’s $2.5 billion Curiosity rover safely landed on Mars after eight months of interplanetary travel. The car-sized, one-ton rover now begins a two-year mission of exploration and discovery as it roams the surface of the red planet.
Imagine being an astronaut on a mission who’s stuck with the same old food for weeks or months (it’s not like you can call out for pizza).
Like most people who are faced with similar dining choices day after day, you’d likely eat less — and that’s a concern for scientists. So they’re recruiting volunteers to help them test out edible fare in preparation for a future mission.
Photos of the Earth taken from space are nothing new, but you’ve never seen the planet like this before, guaranteed. Dubbed “Blue Marble,” this NASA photo is a staggering 64-megapixels with an 8000 x 8000 resolution.
