Gravity Research Foundation 1st Award

Gravity Research Foundation

Description

Established in 1948 by businessman Roger Babson, the Gravity Research Foundation was originally designed to find ways to block or reduce the effect of gravity. In a book called "Gravity -- Our Enemy No. 1," Babson indicated that this desire dated from the childhood drowning of his oldest sister. "She was unable to fight gravity, which came up and seized her like a dragon and brought her to the bottom," he wrote.
