The Angry Birds are on board to celebrate 60 years of NASA

NASA came to be when American president Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the National Aeronautics and Space Act into law on July 29, 1958. That makes NASA 60 years old! In case you’ve missed any of their landmarks in aeronautical innovation and space exploration, good news! You can catch up on NASA’s 60 year history in 60 seconds.

To celebrate NASA’s big 60, we’ve launched some special events in Angry Birds 2 and Angry Birds Blast. Take a look below for the mission briefing and get ready for take off.

Angry Birds 2 NASA Hats!

First up, if you’re going to space, you need the proper headgear. Angry Birds 2 has you covered – at least from the neck up. Hit the Tower of Fortune in Angry Birds 2 to claim brand new NASA hats for your flock – you’re going to need them.

Once your flock is properly equipped, you’re clear for takeoff in the new Spatial Adventure event. Take on seven special levels peppered with gravity-bending black holes. These infinitely dense deformations in space-time will drastically bend the trajectory of your birds so strategize accordingly. Only birds with the proper headgear can take part in the Spatial Adventure so get those birds geared up!

Speaking of getting geared up, you can try on the Angry Birds 2 NASA helmet yourself – thanks to cutting-edge spatial imaging, mixed reality technology! I’m talking about our new Facebook camera effect.

Angry Birds Blast – NEW NASA Events!

Angry Birds Blast is looking back at three big NASA accomplishments in a trio of limited time in-game events. First, dig for a buried artifact in the Martian soil in the Mars Rover Treasure Hunt. Next, scale the Apollo launchpad in 15 tricky levels in the Apollo Mighty League. Last, we’re touching down on the lunar surface in the Moon Landing Throne Rush. You’ve got five levels to complete, but can you do it with only one life? Mission critical stuff.

There it is. Get your NASA hats in Angry Birds 2 and take part in the Spatial Adventure event from now until October 14, and play all of the NASA events in Angry Birds Blast until October 11!
