noun; compounding
One who molests newborn children in outer space. It was used in reference to a previous conversation in which a friend declared that she would like to give birth to a baby in outer space; her statement was somehow misconstrued by the other interlocutors as a desire to have sex with babies in space. After this conversation was referenced by one of its participants during dinnertime discourse, the term astroinfantiphile was specifically constructed to label my friend.
Etymology : astroinfantiphile. Compound of astro- 'star, heavens, outer space', infant 'a child in the first period of life', and pedophile 'one afflicted with pedophilia'
Source : A group of friends.
