Welcome to Professor Stephen Hawking's Facebook page. Managed by the Stephen Hawking Foundation.

In celebration of Open Access Week, my doctoral thesis, Properties of Expanding Universes, written in 1966, is now available to the public. Anyone, anywhere in the world should have free, unhindered access to not just my research, but to the research of every great and enquiring mind across the spectrum of human understanding.

I hope my work will inspire someone to pursue their own research, to seek the answer to one of the universe's many unanswered questions, as the works of Isaac Newton, James Clerk Maxwell, and Albert Einstein once inspired me. After so many requests over time from people wanting to read this thesis, I also hope it doesn't disappoint. If it does, please address any questions or complaints to my younger self. You will only have to invent time travel to do so. - SH
