Kenneth Wilson's Nobel Prize to auction at Nate D Sanders

Scientist Kenneth G Wilson's 1982 Nobel Prize for Physics is up for sale at Nate D Sanders.

Wilson Nobel Prize
Kenneth Wilson advanced our understanding of phase transitions

He was awarded the medal for his work on the critical point of phase transitions, meaning the exact moment that a solid, liquid or gas converts into another form.

The lot is expected to make in excess of $450,000 at the May 26 auction.  

It will be the latest in a long list of Nobel Prizes to cross the block over the last couple of years, with the most recent being the medal awarded to physiologist Alan Hodgkins.

It sold for $795,550 at Nate D Sanders last year.
