We are so sad to report that Leonard Nimoy has died at the age of 83.

His wife Susan Bay Nimoy confirmed the sad news that the author/actor/poet/musician — best known for his iconic role as Mr. Spock on the original Star Trek — passed away at his Bel Air home Friday morning.

Leonard's death is being attributed to his end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

The star announced he had the disease last year, attributing it to his years of smoking.

It is a sad day across the universe.
