Stephen Hawking's PhD thesis available online

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

You can finally take a peek into the mind of one of the greatest students in the world: Stephen Hawking, and his PhD thesis.

The University of Cambridge has long looked after the doctorate presented by the young Professor Hawking, and the work that would go on to make him famous.

Now, anyone anywhere can download and look at a digitised version of the thesis – complete with Mr Hawking's own hand-written signature. But there's no guarantee that all of them will actually understand it: the thesis' title is 'Properties of expanding universes' and it continues in a similarly mind-blowing but difficult vein throughout.

It's in demand.


Stephen Hawking’s 1966 doctoral thesis has broken the internet after becoming available to the general public for the first time.

Demand for the thesis, entitled Properties of Expanding Universes, was so great on Monday that it caused Cambridge University’s repository site to go down. The site was still inaccessible at 7.30pm on Monday.

The “historic and compelling” thesis had swiftly become the most-requested item in Cambridge’s open access repository, Apollo.
