Engineer uses Mars Curiosity rover to honor Leonard Nimoy

In the wake of Leonard Nimoy’s death, the world’s most beloved Vulcan, a member of the engineering operations team for the Mars Curiosity rover decided to send him a message.

The simplified message, “ECHO “SOL-0914M10:26:01.537″,”\’RIP Leonard Nimoy.\’,” was sent by Reddit user Splendian.

“When we heard about Leonard Nimoy’s death, I happened to be on shift for operations and so I decided to have Curiosity execute a command that would echo a message for him,” Splendian said in the post.

“In any case, Curiosity misses him too.”
