#003 Peter Higgs
Peter Ware Higgs CH FRS FRSE HonFInstP (born 29 May 1929) is a British theoretical physicist, Emeritus Professor in the University of Edinburgh, and Nobel Prize laureate for his work on the mass of subatomic particles.
This so-called Higgs mechanism, which was proposed by several physicists besides Higgs at about the same time, predicts the existence of a new particle, the Higgs boson, the detection of which became one of the great goals of physics.
The significance of this discovery is akin to the web 3.0 technologies being explored and built at this moment. We think that using Higgs as a first NFT release will be exciting and meaningful at the same time. a true recognition and celebration of his remarkable work.
