The article on Technology Review states; "Technology Review is announcing a prize for any molecular biologist working in the field of aging who is willing to take up the challenge: submit an intellectually serious argument that SENS is so wrong that it is unworthy of learned debate, and you will be paid $20,000 if it convinces independent referees."<ref>[https://www.technologyreview.com/s/404453/the-sens-challenge/ The SENS Challenge]</ref>  A Facebook post dated March 2014, stated that 3 entries had been submitted to the challenge, but that all of them had failed. <ref>[https://www.facebook.com/IFeakingLoveScience/posts/214144395445818 Samuel Schmidt shared a photo to I fucking love science's Timeline.]</ref>
