Last week, the world, the universe, lost a great man. Leonard Nimoy passed away at the age of 83. The great actor had taken on many roles in his long career, but the most memorable, the most iconic is of course, that of Mr. Spock from Star Trek. Mr. Nimoy's passing hit me harder than most, as he was a central figure in my childhood and into my adult life. He was a great actor and a great humanitarian rights activist. I even loved his music. seriously, unlike Shatner, Nimoy could actually sing, and did a great cover of Ring of Fire.
So, in memory of the great man, I dedicate this edition of the Heavenly Body of the Week to Vulcan, the home planet of Spock's Vulcan half of his heritage. Live long and prosper Mr. Spock, wherever you may be.
That's it gang. See ya 'round the web.
