Reprise: Collapse Time Analysis of Multi-Story Structural Steel Buildings

It’s interesting that real science continues to be practiced under the noses of the censors and social controllers, who apparently think people are incapable of understanding it, reflecting their estimation of the peasantry’s cognitive abilities.   But to the extent that this is a society of clueless sheep, it’s primarily a reflection of the delusional and self-aggrandizing “leadership” exhibited at the top.    Darwin, you’re fired!

Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe

Abstract: We have discovered distinctive red/gray chips in all the samples we have studied of the dust produced by the destruction of the World Trade Center. Examination of four of these samples, collected from separate sites, is reported in this paper. These red/gray chips show marked similarities in all four samples. One sample was collected by a Manhattan resident about ten minutes after the collapse of the second WTC Tower, two the next day, and a fourth about a week later. The properties of these chips were analyzed using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (XEDS), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The red material contains grains approximately 100 nm across which are largely iron oxide, while aluminum is contained in tiny plate-like structures. Separation of components using methyl ethyl ketone demonstrated that elemental aluminum is present. The iron oxide and aluminum are intimately mixed in the red material. When ignited in a DSC device the chips exhibit large but narrow exotherms occurring at approximately 430 °C, far below the normal ignition temperature for conventional thermite. Numerous iron-rich spheres are clearly observed in the residue following the ignition of these peculiar red/gray chips. The red portion of these chips is found to be an unreacted thermitic material and highly energetic.
