Angry Birds Space will occupy the free time of every human being you've ever met starting March 22nd, its recently announced launch date on iOS, Android, PC and Mac. The release date reveal was joined by an obscenely charming video tutorial from NASA astronaut Don Pettit, who demonstrates how real-life space physics are implemented in the game. He does this by building a slingshot, and launching a stuffed Angry Bird across the International Space Station towards a crudely drawn balloon pig. Keep in mind that there's no gravity during this demonstration, because space is awesome.

The promo also includes a gameplay demonstration from the new title, which tasks players with using the gravitational pull of planetary bodies to curve their bird-missiles into porcine outposts. If you had a hard time figuring out the earthly trajectories of the original title, you are going to be in serious, serious trouble this time around.
