So Long, Spock

Nimoy, portraying Mr. Spock in fine
23rd-Century threads
R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy, who died today at 83.

I don't usually wax nostalgic on this blog, but I'll break character for Mr. Nimoy. I'm sure many scientists feel the same way - for me, his portrayal of Spock illustrated the best virtues of chemists: Patience. Curiosity. Intrigue. Skepticism. Diligence. Logic.

Capped, of course, with a wry, dry sense of humor.

Thanks for everything, Leonard.
