This ongoing collaboration with Rovio and Angry Birds is an exciting way to get people engaged with NASA's missions of exploration and discovery, and get students energized about future careers in science and technology."
Hmmmm, getting students energized about future careers in science and teck and playing Angry Birds doesn't sound like they go hand in hand, but who am I to judge.

Parent - "Do you like Angry Birds"

Kids - "Yeah mommy, I want to be an astronaut when I grow up"

they try to get kids wanting to be an astronaut, but the problem is, they have nothing of interest anymore.

And besides, there is a very little demand for astronauts due to massive budget slashes. Take a look at NASA's rocket-management or space control staff, its essentially a skeleton crew.

Perhaps, they should just give those astronauts some handheld consoles for them on spare time.

Games are meant for fun, I find Angry Birds at some points actually gets me angrier...so simple,yet so difficult, yet again...so addicting..

One does not simply quit playing Angry Birds, they say :-/

I must be showing my age. I read "Pigs in Angry bird Space" as "Pigs in Space" and imediatly thought of the Muppet Show. Angry Birds vs. "Pigs in Space" hmm.
