Abstract

Language evolves over time to describe what is important for the speakers. From the Egyptian hieroglyphics in 3000 AD to the English language today, different societies from different parts of the world changed, developed, and perfected their dialects. Emojis dominate the language we use to communicate in the society we live in today, and to reach a modern, international generation, symbols to describe our future in space travel should be developed. Language evolves over time to describe what is important for the society. Dozens of images were designed that describes specific aspects of spaceflight across our solar system. A high schooler in Silicon Valley is modernizing those symbols to introduce them to language and shorten those long exchanges about extra terrestrial travel, understood despite language barriers.
