    “Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy,” said President Barack  Obama after the actor’s death in 2015.  “Leonard was a lifelong lover of the arts and humanities, a supporter of the sciences, generous with his talent and his time. And of course, Leonard was Spock. Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed, the center of Star Trek’s optimistic, inclusive vision of humanity’s future. I loved Spock.  In 2007, I had the chance to meet Leonard in person. It was only logical to greet him with the Vulcan salute, the universal sign for ‘Live long and prosper.’ And after 83 years on this planet-– and on his visits to many others – it’s clear Leonard Nimoy did just that. Michelle and I join his family, friends and countless fans who miss him so dearly today.”

    NASAstronaut Terry Virts did the same  – from outer space! He tweeted a tribute photo from the International Space Station of his fingers forming the salute  – against the backdrop of planet Earth. Beat that, Mr President!
