Engadget: Stephen Hawking makes his doctoral thesis available online. “Ever wondered how Stephen Hawking saw the universe as a doctoral candidate, when his theories about black holes were just coming into fruition? You don’t have to hear about it second-hand — you can now go straight to the source. The legendary cosmologist has published his 1966 doctoral thesis online for anyone to read, making it available to the public for the first time. Hawking is posting his work in hopes that it’ll spark interests in both space itself and sharing research. ‘I hope to inspire people around the world to look up at the stars and not down at their feet,’ he said.”
