Leonard Nimoy's Spock Ears Donated to the Smithsonian

In Star Trek, Mr. Spock was the beloved half-Vulcan, half-human science officer known for his intellect, his cool logic, and his pointed ears. His elf-like ears are probably one of the most recognizable sets of ears in science fiction. And now, the Smithsonian announces that one set of Spock’s iconic ears, from the personal collection of Spock’s original actor Leonard Nimoy himself, will be part of their collection.

The prop was worn during the filming of the original series from the 1960s and was taken by the actor as a memento after filming concluded in 1969. His children Adam and Julie have now donated their father’s keepsake to the National Air and Space Museum.
