Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

In the Cosmere, as space becomes more developed...*inaudible* outer space.

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

It's an interesting question that I've had to ponder. Would the space race happen more slowly because there's an alternative, or would it happen more quickly because you know other planets are inhabited. I'm not going to answer what I came up with, because it's a plot point in the books. So I'll give you a RAFO card, but that's the question to ask yourself.

Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

That wasn't my question! My question was, in the Cognitive Realm, with the gap between planets...

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

Oh! Will the gap between planets get larger as more people travel in between it. So, barring things like space stations, there's going to be so few minds in between, that I don't expect space to become larger because of that.

I don't expect it to be a factor, except--barring--there will be possibilities of certain regions popping up.

Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

Darksiders have almost as advanced technology as second Era Scadrians.

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

Yes.

Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

But then we see Darksiders in The Secret-- in Mistborn: The Secret History. So are they gonna be the first spacefarers, are they gonna get there before Scadrians?

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

So, where it is right now is that certain things have happened to Taldain that have isolated it and cut it off.

Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

Yeah, a little bit in Arcanum Unbounded talked about that.

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

And some-- they're under-- going through some difficult times, let's say... So, I will RAFO whether or not they're going to make it first to make it to space, but let's just say they were well on target to making it first before certain events happened.

Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

I've studied aerospace medicine, so I wondered, Kaladin, is his Shardplate going to have any special properties that are going to help for very high-altitude travel?

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

Let's just say, the fact that his two surges have to do with pressure and with gravity, Let's just say that is on my mind.

Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

Have you thought of the implications of Pulsers, or cadmium Mistings, in space travel?

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

Yes, I have.

Questioner [PENDING REVIEW]

Because you could slow down the time bubble around the ship and extend your life span during long journeys.

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

Yes, I have thought of that.
