Prepare to have your socks blown off! To promote the new Angry Birds: Space game, developer Rovio has only managed to get an ACTUAL NASA astronaut, ACTUALLY in space, to announce the game’s launch. From 242.5 miles above the earth’s surface, aboard the International Space Station, astronaut Don Pettit explains the physics behind the game, using a plush Red Bird and an orbital slingshot.
Romanian teenager Raul Oaida engaged the help of Melburnian entrepreneur Stever Sammatino to put together a 'mini project' to remind others that "we're in an age now where we can do cool things just because they're cool, that need no financial reasons". So a space shuttle, attached with a helium-filled balloon, a GPS and video camera was launched successfully into space, as a tribute to the end of the space shuttle era. All these captured in a video we think is very inspiring to watch.
