Following Rovio’s update for Angry Birds Star Wars yesterday, Rovio launched an update to Angry Birds Space on Friday. The update brings the game up to version 1.6.0 and adds 35 new cosmic crystal levels.

Rovio notes that the planets in the cosmic crystal levels are breakable and explosive. They are composed of shiny purple crystal substances. You’ll just need to aim your bird in the direction of the planets to shatter them.

There's also a crazy mutant pig that you'll have the honor of beating... if you can. He's greedy and doesn't want to give up domination of his cosmic crystal universe.

Existing players of Angry Birds Space will find the update under the Updates tab in the App Store. Alternatively, you can download the latest version of Angry Birds Space for the iPhone touch or iPhone for 99 from this App Store link, or the latest version of Angry Birds Space HD for the iPad for $2.99 from this App Store link.
