We're guessing 22 Cans isn't so thrilled with the Curiosity rover at the moment. Rovio Mobile, on the hand, is celebrating it.

Don't scratch your head -- NASA and Rovio are tight; the two have been working together for a while, educating kids with Space.

The update is free and apparently packs in a couple of secrets. Rovio reckons this is the most "epic" episode of the game yet, which marks the second time this week we've seen this wording used to describe a content drop.
