Stephen Hawking’s Thesis Made Publicly Available For First Time

24 October 2017
The Guardian reports that Stephen Hawking’s 1966 doctoral thesis has been made available to the public for the first time. The thesis, “Properties of Expanding Universes,” was made available at midnight on Sunday, and already has become the most requested-item in Cambridge’s Apollo repository. Demand for the thesis was “so great on Monday that it caused Cambridge University’s repository site to go down.” A University of Cambridge spokesperson said that there had been a “huge response” to the release, “with almost 60,000 downloads in less than 24 hours.” Hawking’s thesis “considers implications and consequences of the expansion of the universe, and its conclusions include that galaxies cannot be formed through the growth of perturbations that were initially small.” (Image Credit: NASA)
