英国的剑桥大学也加入了庆祝活动中,该校免费在线公开了史蒂芬·霍金1966年的博士学位论文。霍金毕业于剑桥大学。

霍金是世界知名的物理学家。年仅24岁时,他就完成了论文《宇宙膨胀的属性》。这篇论文探究的是宇宙的起源——这也是霍金毕生事业的研究内容。
News of Hawking’s publicly available thesis spread quickly.Within hours, Cambridge’s website collapsed because of the high number of people trying to access Hawking’s research paper.
霍金论文公开的消息很快就传开了。数小时内,剑桥的网站就瘫痪了,原因是太多人尝试下载霍金的这篇论文。
A Cambridge spokesman said in a statement,“We have had a huge response to Professor Hawking’s decision to make his PhD thesis publicly available to download,with almost 60,000 downloads in less than 24 hours.”The spokesman said that, as a result of the paper’s popularity, the website may perform slowly at times.
剑桥发言人在一份声明中写道,“网友对霍金先生允许公开下载其博士学位论文的决定反响热烈,不到一天的时间里,下载量就达到了近6万次。”该发言人表示,由于这篇论文的人气火爆,剑桥的网站可能会出现反应迟缓的现象。
Hawking’s research was already the most-requested item in Cambridge’s library.He recently gave the university permission to make it an “Open Access” document.
霍金的研究在剑桥图书馆已经十分抢手。最近,霍金允许剑桥大学将这篇论文作为“开放的学术资源”文件来公开。
Hawking said he hoped making his thesis freely available for everyone would “inspire people around the world to look up at the stars and not look down at their feet;to wonder about our place in the universe and to try to make sense of the cosmos.”
霍金曾表示自己希望能公开自己的论文,因为每个人都可以“激发全世界的其他人去仰望星空,而不是只看着脚下;对我们的宇宙抱有更多的好奇心,并试着弄清楚宇宙的奥秘。”
Hawking’s newly available thesis -- and talk of how it shut down Cambridge’s website -- became trending topics on Twitter and Facebook.

Many on social media said they were pleased that so many people around the world were interested in reading Hawking’s research.
