What was the previous exercise? 'alien' = 'romvesen' should be accepted. All aliens are from space, so 'space alien' would be redundant.

Edit: 'space alien' should now be accepted.

it has nothing to do with america mate, that's the definition of the word...alien - noun - a foreigner, especially one who is not a naturalized citizen of the country where they are living. comes from early latin 'alius' meaning other and then medieval latin (also old french) 'alienus' meaning belonging to another

Accepting "space being", the literal translation, would be good too, unless you feel it's misleading.
