Ph.D. Dissertation (thesis). Book with green cloth binding, titled (on spine):"Properties of Expanding Universes". Photostatic copy typescript. Cambridge (UK), 1966.

From early in his career, Hawking showed a daring approach and a flair for communication. His 1966 PhD thesis provided crucial support for the big-bang theory. Hawking ran the theory of the collapse that forms black holes in reverse, showing that the universe must explode into being from a single point in space and time.

His 1974 paper ‘Black Hole Explosions’ disproved the conventional notion that nothing could ever escape from a black hole. It boldly blended quantum theory, which describes the very small scales of the atomic world, with general relativity, the large-scale theory of gravity.
