The trailer for the latest Angry Birds Space update features footage taken by the Mars Curiosity rover.

The update, entitled Red Planet, includes 20 new levels set on Mars and a new astronaut pig that has hijacked the Curiosity rover to search for eggs.

“Rovio is teaching huge new audiences about NASA’s missions to Mars thanks to this collaboration,” said David Weaver, associate administrator for communications at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “It’s a great way to introduce both kids and adults to the wonders of the planet in a fun and entertaining way.”

“We’re huge NASA fans, and we were all cheering the Mars Curiosity rover as it touched down,” said Peter Vesterbacka, chief marketing officer of Rovio Entertainment. “So, working together on the Mars update was a perfect fit.”

Red Planet is available on iOS and Android now.
