Ender’s Game: Creating the Zero-G Battle Rooms

by Kenny Hoeschen

Ender’s Game, the film adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s terrific science fiction novel, hit theaters this past Friday. Now, Wired takes us behind the scenes to look at the creation of one of the centerpieces of the storyline: the zero gravity battle rooms in which Ender Wiggin first learns to command his armies.
