If you ever want to talk: My Tumblr ask is always open.
Time doesn’t pass more slowly when you’re in space, it passes more slowly the faster you move. Yes, if you are running, time is passing slower for you, just very very very slightly slower. But in the Ender universe people travel VERY FAST…like right up against the speed of light fast. So a journey that will have taken a couple of years for someone on the spaceship might have taken a hundred years for the people watching.
As for WHY this is…I can’t help you…special relativity is confusing.
Pretty sure time actually DOES pass more slowly in zero-G, because Earth’s gravity warps space-time, but the effect is incredibly miniscule, but still enough that satellite’s clocks have to compensate for it.
It’s actually the opposite: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravitational_time_dilation
Oops, should have double checked that. Oh hubris, I am undone!
Yeah, I had to check my facts too. This shit is complicated.
