Dr Hal. H. E. Puthoff, as he signs many of his papers.

“It probably won’t occur if you don’t work on the problem”
– Dr Hal

Dr. Puthoff is the Director of the Institute For Advanced Study at Austin, a private think tank in Austin, Texas, established in 1985 to explore advanced concepts in forefront scientific areas. Dr Hal has a great think tankful of really bright people working with him. His and his colleagues’ contributions to science advancement are myriad and now Puthoff’s thoughts are turned to gravity control. We asked him which of his many publications most addressed the quest for gravity control.
He offered three. We chose Engineering the Zero-Point Field and Polarizable Vacuum for Interstellar Flight as being on target with Project Unity.

“Hal Puthoff is a brilliant thinker, in an indirect way he is a scientific genius who dares to say out loud what he believes in, and has the guts to tell sceptics to take a walk. Some day all his theories will prove to be correct!”
– Uri Geller April 9 2006

SHARP is an acronym for Sakharov , Haisch, Rueda and Puthoff.

Gravity Control is a matter of time.
Anti-gravity technology research in electromagnetic propulsion and other technologies is under development, and we would like to document its discovery.
