+ - Scientists Find Evidence of Atlantis off Coast of Brazil->

Submitted by gray peter
gray peter writes: A team of Japanese and Brazilian scientists have found granite, which usually only forms on dry land 8000 feet below the sea while exploring the Rio Grande Elevation using the Japanese Shinkai 6500 submarine. This evidence suggests that there was a land mass there at some point. This location has often been suggested as the possible location of the elusive Atlantis.

I think it's pretty clear from the trailer that Ender knows what he's doing. IIRC (I read the book almost 20 years ago) he thinks he's still in training exercises when he's actually in real combat. Maybe the trailer is misleading, but if they have Ender knowing he's in real battle that will change the entire tone of the story. Sort of like they did with Blade Runner vs. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.
