Last week Rovio announced Angry Birds Space and it will be ready for hurling March 22nd.  Some are crediting inspiration for the game on a tweet from NASA last year.

"We might be able to help you launch birds if you find pigs in space," NASA wrote Rovio on Twitter in March 2011.

Less than a year later, and with a Space Act Agreement in hand, Rovio and NASA are now counting down to a cross-platform launch that Rovio says will go where no mobile game has gone before.

"We'll launch simultaneously in mobile gaming, animation, retail and publishing," Rovio stated. "Not only is this a first for us as an integrated entertainment company, but the first time this has ever been done for a mobile game!"
