For example: when we look up news stories online, or tune in on TV, we are being given news reports that fall within a spacial scope.
- Local news: City and surrounding county.
- Regional news: "Pacific Northwest" for example.
- National news: Nation
- Global news: Also known as "World News"
Bring that scope out even further and you've got the gist of my question. If we were, for example, to colonize the Moon, Mars, or even asteroids in the future, what would that particular scope of news be called?
Here's my ideas and why I'm still conflicted about whether they are proper or not:
Intrastellar: "stellar" technically meaning "star" and "intra" meaning "within." I certainly hope we aren't receiving news from within our star in the future(ouch). But, of course, it could be adopted to mean "within our solar system." Does that sound right to you?
Furthermore, this word, having the prefix of "inter," would more be in line with inter-municipal, inter-regional, international and interstellar.
Interterrestrial: Again, we are trying to include all space and celestial bodies within the bounds of our solar system, including asteroids and space stations. "Terrestrial" hints at planetary bodies only.
Solar: Again, it refers directly to the actual Sun itself, but do you think it could grow to be side-by-side with local, national, global, etc. with regard to describing things that exist or occur within the bounds of the solar system?
Unless, of course, "solar" refers only to our star, the Sun. It may not be able to refer to the confines of another star's system.
Systemic: now it just sounds like we're talking about a disease.
I simply cannot think of an adjective that properly denotes all things within a solar system, but no more specific than that, without directly referring to our Sun only.
