Most widely revered for his timeless portrayal of Spock on Star Trek, actor, poet, writer and photographer Leonard Nimoy passed away at 83 just earlier today. Born in Boston, Nimoy had acted from the age of 8 onwards, finally landing his big break aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise in 1965.

Nimoy’s likeness has been largely associated with peace and balance, and will continue to live on in memory. For a more rounded exploration of Nimoy’s wondrous life, head over here.
