With the GÖDE Award for Gravity Research, the GÖDE-Stiftung Foundation has announced the Prize of One Million €uros in 2004 for providing substantive and convincing experimental evidence of influencing gravity, a special incentive for innovative research projects that look beyond the horizons of science.
Entitled to take part are all persons, independent of occupation and academic degree, age, or nationality. The aim is to influence gravity with presently unknown methods. Applicants must successfully design, construct and complete an experiment with specified performance characteristics: at least 20-gram device, or the assembly itself, is required to float freely at least 1 minute at a minimum distance of 10 cm from any surface. Experiments that deviate from these requirements, but reveal a clear effect of influence on gravity, or gravity impulse, can be submitted. The committee decides, if the experiment can participate.

Subject: Re: EXPERIMENTAL Quantum Antigravity
Thank you for the information and for sharing your ideas with us. We are currently dealing with other experiments, but we would be happy to hear from you again, when you have finished and evaluated your project, or even found a gravitational effect.
We wish you good luck with your research.

Yes, we have evaluated our project, and we have found a gravitational effect also.

Subject: Your application for the Göde award
I am sorry for our delayed answer. It took some time for reviewing your application.
As your probably know your application doesn’t meet the conditions given at our website: http://www.goede-stiftung.org/en/goede-award/
“Applicants must successfully design, construct and complete an experiment with specified performance characteristics. A 20 gram heavy device or the assembly itself, is required to float freely at least 1 minute at a minimum distance of 10 cm from any surface.”
We considered your experiment regarding the section “Experiments, that deviate from the target setting, but reveal a clear effect regarding gravity (gravity impulse), can be submitted.”, but your concept does not fit in any of our alternative categories.
Therefore we have to reject your application.
As a matter of course your application and your data will be treated strictly confidential and will not be used in any way.
Yours sincerely, on behalf of Team IGF
