    Interview: Nov 8th, 2011

    Brandon Sanderson

    Watch for what happens when something leaves a bendalloy bubble.

    Footnote

    He later said "Ha, that won't make sense for about 10 books," leading many to believe this has to do with FTL travel.

    Interview: Nov 6th, 2012

    Question

    I think I remember hearing you say before that Mistborn was going to be three trilogies?

    Brandon Sanderson

    It'll be three trilogies, yes.

    QUESTION

    With the technology advancing and going faster than light...?

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    Yes, the FTL is built into the magic systems and so there will be something where they figure out how to do that with the magic and spaceships will be propelled using that.

    QUESTION

    Okay, awesome, just wanted to double check that.

    JOSH

    Expanding bubbles around the engines and around the ships?

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    You will see, you will see.

    JOSH

    Someone on the site actually has-

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    Actually figured it out?

    QUESTION

    Has a very convincing theory.

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    They're missing a very big important piece of the puzzle that you won't get for a few more books.

    Kurkistan

    If I get a Slider, a Pulser, and a Nicroburst in a rocket with a lot of metal, do I have FTL?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Hehehehe. You're getting closer but you haven't figured it out yet.

    Interview: Jan 10th, 2013

    NutiketAiel

    When asked by a fan about the third Mistborn trilogy:

    Brandon Sanderson

    "The third Mistborn trilogy is going to involve a lot of tying things together." "Allomancy has built into it faster than light travel." The fan mentioned the speed bubbles after that, but Brandon replied noncommittally.

    Interview: Apr 8th, 2016

    Kurkistan

    Overheard

    Brandon Sanderson

    I distinctly heard Brandon talking with the other table about space travel as relates to Roshar. He was talking about how the magic can already control gravity/pressure and the like, but the thing that stood out clearly was that he was saying that they already had an ansible. The only candidate for that is spanreeds/conjoiner fabrials, so that's a nice confirmation there that they communicate faster than light.
