Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.
His artistic pursuits — poetry, photography and music in addition to acting — ranged far beyond the United Federation of Planets, but it was as Mr. Spock that Mr. Nimoy became a folk hero, bringing to life one of the most indelible characters of the last half century: a cerebral, unflappable, pointy-eared Vulcan with a signature salute and blessing: “Live long and prosper” (from the Vulcan “Dif-tor heh smusma”).
The miracle is this: The more we share, the more we have
Thank you Leonard.

I used to tell kids in school that Spock was my father (and vice-versa). I seriously loved his character and it was so awesome the day I got to meet him at a con. I think I even have one of his poetry books still. He may be gone, but Star Trek lives on. “I have been and always shall be your friend.” \\ //_
Will always live long and prosper in our memories. Farewell legend.
Thanks Adafruit for paying respect to Leonard Nimoy!
Awesome that adafruit is paying homeage to Leonard Nimoy. I love this company, thank you! And thank you Leonard Nimoy for inspiring at least two generations of kids to pursue science for their careers, you will be missed.
What a Legend. He truly boldly went where no man had gone before. I loved him growing u p and inspired me to love sic-fi and all things space related. He will be sadly missed and remembered for countless light years ahead. RIP great inspiration. You changed our ideals and thoughts forever.
