Inside the Dust of the World Trade Center

Thermite Melting Steel

A group of scientists has discovered evidence that once again raises the question of what caused the World Trade Center towers to collapse after two jetliners slammed into them on September 11, 2001. The conventional theory that burning jet fuel created intense heat, causing the steel in the towers to weaken, has drawn skeptics, including members of a team that discovered traces of an “active thermitic material” in the dust from the collapsed towers. That material, according to scientists, possesses explosive or incendiary properties, and is most commonly found in steel welding, fireworks shows, and hand grenades.

The scientists, who published their findings in The Open Chemical Physics Journal, do not say how the thermite might have gotten into the World Trade Center dust. Some of the authors of the paper, such as Kevin Ryan, lost their jobs at universities or laboratories for questioning the accepted cause of the towers’ collapse. Ryan wrote a letter to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which was investigating the World Trade Center collapse, claiming that the owner of his laboratory subsidiary was the same company that certified the steel components used to build the towers in the early 1970s. The lab, Underwriters Laboratories Ltd., has denied that it tested or certified the components.
The official NIST version says that the towers collapsed because “(1) the impact of the planes severed and damaged support columns, dislodged fireproofing insulation coating the steel floor trusses and steel columns, and widely dispersed jet fuel over multiple floors; and (2) the subsequent unusually large, jet-fuel ignited multi-floor fires weakened the now susceptible structural steel.”

Let’s just face some simple facts. Skyscrapers MUST hold themselves up. They must also sway in the wind. The people who design skyscrapers MUST figure out how much steel and how much concrete they are going to put on every level before they even dig the hole for the foundation. After EIGHT YEARS why don’t we have a table specifying the TONS of STEEL and TONS of CONCRETE that were on every level of the WTC? The NIST report does not even specify the TOTAL for the concrete. The total for the steel is in three places. So even if the planes did it that 10,000 page report is CRAP! Conspiracies are irrelevant. The Truth Movement should be marching on all of the engineering schools in the country. Watch that Purdue simulation. If a 150 ton airliner crashes near the top of a skyscraper at 440 mph isn’t the building going to sway? Didn’t the survivors report the building “moving like a wave”? So why do the core columns in the Purdue video remain perfectly still as the plane comes in? That is the trouble with computer simulations. If they are good, they are very good. But if they have a defect either accidental or deliberate they can be REALLY STUPID once you figure out the flaws. The distribution of steel and concrete is going to affect the sway of a skyscraper whether it is from the wind or an airliner. ROFL
