NASA Prepares Us For Angry Birds Space With A Physics Lesson From Space [Video]

We’re two weeks away from launch day, the day Angry Birds boldly goes where no bird has gone before. I’m of course talking about Angry Birds Space, Rovio’s next Angry Bird iteration which looks to turn the series upside down. To prepare us for the challenges of launching a projectile in a weightless environment while compensating for the gravity fields of neighboring planetary bodies, NASA astronaut Dan Pettit gives us a quick physics lesson while aboard the International Space Station.

While math and physics could come in handy when trying to land a job with NASA, the majority of society is only interested in getting 3 stars on every new Angry Birds level. So grab your number 2 pencils and college ruled notebooks, and start plotting your formula for the the perfect Angry Birds Space trajectory.
