Leonard Nimoy Has Passed Away

"Leonard Nimoy, whose portrayal of "Star Trek's" logic-driven, half-human science officer Spock made him an iconic figure to generations, died Friday. He was 83.

The Los Angeles Times and New York Times confirmed his death with his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy.

The cause of death was chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, she told the New York Times."

The passing of a major Icon of science fiction; he inspired many to the sciences (and made logic "cool"). His image will continue to inspire long after his death today.

RIP Mr. Nimoy. He was the most interesting character on Trek TOS.
