The website of the University of Cambridge crashed on Monday when the site put up, for the first time ever, the doctoral thesis of legendary theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking – ‘The Properties of Expanding Universes’.

The site periodically crashed and came up throughout the day, as more people visited to download’s Hawking’s work.

Hawking, 75, is considered one of the foremost theoretical physicists of his generation and his work on black holes is groundbreaking. His 1988 book ‘A Brief History of Time’ is one of the best selling scientific books of all time with over 10m copies sold worldwide.

Cambridge University and Hawking decided to make the document available as part of ‘Open Access’ Week.
