Communicating with lifeforms outside of Earth?!

Planetary Nebula NGC 6302This week NASA released images from the newly repaired Hubble telescope and they were stellar! Here are a few pictures and quotes taken from the NASA website that I thoroughly enjoyed!

“Butterfly Emerges from Stellar Demise in Planetary Nebula NGC 6302: This celestial object looks like a delicate butterfly. But it is far from serene.”

Stephan's Quintet

“Galactic Wreckage in Stephan’s Quintet: A clash among members of a famous galaxy quintet reveals an assortment of stars across a wide color range, from young, blue stars to aging, red stars.”

Galaxy NGC 6217“Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 6217: The galaxy lies 6 million light-years away in the north circumpolar constellation Ursa Major.”

These awesome pictures are causing many to think of the possibility that advanced life forms, other than the ones we know on Earth, may exist!

We’ve had translation, then localization (l10n), then internationalization (i18n), then globalization (g11n). If you can contemplate the possible discoveries that Hubble can make, then what comes next? Dare we talk about extraterrestrialization (e21n) or celestialization (c14n)?! Can you suggest better terms that our industry can use million light years from today?
