Semicolons! In! Space!

In a press release today, the International Society Of Semicolons announced that their entire population would be leaving Earth later this week. Reasons for the decision included grammatical abuse, a lack of appreciation from the English-speaking world, and a general dislike of being included in "winks" in online text communications.

The Semicolon Science Academy, with the help of several disgruntled ex-NASA engineers, has spent the last several years constructing a rocket big enough transport the entire semicolon population to a small planet orbiting the star Alpha Eridani, which appears to be populated entirely by ink-based lifeforms.

While they eventually plan to inhabit the entire planet, their initial settlement will be a small semicolony.
