laws to outer space

Do we consider extraterrestrial life when create laws to regulate outer space?

Imagining extraterrestrial life—from UFO sitings to the possibility of real intelligence— we pause to think. Some of us are afraid. Some truly want to see life outside of Earth. Some are oblivious. Like many, I really do not believe we are alone. How many galaxies are out there?  How many stars within those galaxies and how many planets circling those stars? I feel like it is egotistical to assume we are the only ones in the universe.

So, what if there is life?
