In Swedish we use the word rymdvarelser which in German would be weltraumkreaturen for what in english would be aliens. But aliens means literally främling in Swedish or fremder in German. While rymdvarelser or weltraumkreaturen simply implies that the descripted creature belongs to space it doesn’t say if it’s known to us or not. If you want to meet real life rymdvarelser or weltraumkreaturen you don’t have to search for long. They are already all around you, living on this lonely outpost in space called earth. David Bowie knew this, that we’re all strangers living in space. Alien for one another. Främling or fremder, extra terrestrial or not.
