The producers at BIO.com review hundreds of photos of famous figures each week, from award-winning actors and popular singers, to headliners and scandal makers. While we’re digging through these archives, we often come across amazing photos that we’re just dying to share. So, without further ado, here’s the one image that stands out to us this week:

We lowly humans often dream of traversing the stars and sailing across the dark matter of the universe in a galactic vessel. To us, space may seem like the final frontier, but it is one known all too well by Leonard “Mr. Spock” Nimoy who will turn 82 on March 26th.
The USS Enterprise’s science/first officer spent three years (a total of 80 episodes) exploring space in the original Star Trek series. More recently he crossed over to a parallel dimension as Dr. William Bell in 11 episodes of Fringe. From space to spatial universes, he has amassed a total of 123 acting credits, almost half of which came before the start of Trek. Yet for better or for worse, whenever we hear Mr. Nimoy speak, we’ll always hope that we’re about to be told to “Live long and prosper.”
And if it’s as prosperous a life as Leonard Nimoy
‘s then that’s all right by us.
