Space agency partners with game-maker Rovio to sprinkle Beak Impact update with real space facts and information.
The game, which launched in March, hit 50 million downloads at the end of April. It didn't take long for that figure to double.
A new episode known as as Utopia has been added to Angry Birds Space, promising even more challenges.
According to Rovio, the game's developer, Angry Birds Space is its "fastest-growing mobile game" ever released, beating records set by other Angry Birds titles.
It's up, up and away as some very annoyed avians take to the final frontier.
Angry Birds Space has hit 10 million downloads in three days, making it more popular than the new iPad.
Early numbers show that gamers are apparently eager to leave orbit with Rovio's angry avians.
Dismissing earlier claims, Rovio has confirmed it's bringing Angry Birds Space to Windows Phone 7.
Have you grown bored with the Birds? Me, too. But Angry Birds Space is outta this world, both literally and figuratively.
Rovio CEO today says that the game is in development for the Microsoft OS, contradicting an earlier report that cited his chief marketing officer.
