Hi, What degrees and diploma must one finish before one can be nominated for the Nobel Prize? Are all Awardees since the 1900 holding PhDs? Discovery is not planned but often accidental. What if an undergraduate or just a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Physics accidentally discovered something important like quantum tunneling between many worlds. Can he win a Nobel or must he be PhD. first? Maybe all those who vote for him are PhDs and they would feel bad if just a B.S. Physics graduate is nominated which can undermine their PhDs degrees? Is this the reason only those PhDs are nominated or chosen?
