May you have been in heaven a full half-hour before the devil knows you're dead.

Goodbye, Mr. Spock. You lived long (83 years) and prospered. You Vulcanized me to TV to watch Star Trek every week. Hell, I even became a Trekkie! Rest in peace, Mr. Spock. -SP

From Rick Sternbach on Facebook:


From NASA Headquarters:

“Leonard Nimoy was an inspiration to multiple generations of engineers, scientists, astronauts, and other space explorers. As Mr. Spock, he made science and technology important to the story, while never failing to show, by example, that it is the people around us who matter most.

“NASA was fortunate to have him as a friend and a colleague. He was much more than the Science Officer for the USS Enterprise. Leonard was a talented actor, director, philanthropist, and a gracious man dedicated to art in many forms.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and the legions of Star Trek fans around the world.”

Statement from NASA Administrator Charles Bolden on the passing of Leonard Nimoy.

Something of a call out to that particular occasion can be found in this video:

I liked the one from Jonathan (Riker) Frakes: best 1st Officer ever. :) I'm sad but I celebrate an amazing life he had which inspired so many people. I could only imagine leaving such a legacy.

As an example of "You can go too far" this is pretty good. Then again panic buying of such things as toilet paper etc is proving that we human beings can, especially when goaded by the media, go waaaaaay over the top given the chance.
