Have a fun time with this one, debunkers!!

A team of nine scientists have unearthed startling data from dust gathered in the days and weeks after the World Trade Center towers collapsed on 9/11. They discovered that scattered throughout the dust samples were red and gray chips of 'active thermitic material', or an un-reacted pyrotechnic explosive.

Thermite is used in steel welding, fireworks shows, and hand grenades. It is the combination of a metal powder and a metal oxide which produce a reaction known for extremely high temperatures focused in a very small area for a short period of time. The 'active thermitic material' discovered in the World Trade Center dust was a combination of elemental aluminum and iron oxide, and is a form of thermite known as 'nano-structured super-thermite'.

These observations reminded us of nano-thermite fabricated at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and elsewhere; available papers describe this material as an intimate mixture of UFG[Ultra-fine grain] aluminum and iron oxide in nano-thermite composites to form pyrotechnics or explosives. Commercially available thermite behaves as an incendiary when ignited, but when the ingredients are ultra-fine grain and are intimately mixed, this 'nano-thermite' reacts very rapidly, even explosively, and is sometimes referred to as 'super-thermite', the report explains.

The full article in The Open Chemical Physics Journal can be found here. http://www.bentham-open.org/pages/content.php?TOCPJ/2009/00000002/00000001/7TOCPJ.SGM

Some of the authors of the paper have lost their jobs at universities and chemistry labs for their outspoken breakdown of what happened at the World Trade Center on 9/11. Kevin Ryan lost his job as a lab director after writing a letter to the National Institute for Standards and Technology(NIST was conducting an investigation into 9/11 at the time) challenging the common theory that burning jet fuel weakened the steel supports holding up the 110-story skyscrapers. Ryan claims that the owner of his laboratory subsidiary "was the company that certified the steel components used in the construction of the WTC buildings, according to the South Bend Tribune. Dr. Steven E. Jones, a physicist at Brigham Young University, presented a paper in 2005 discussing alternative theories to the commonly accepted 'jet fuel' reasoning. In September 2006 he was placed on paid administrative leave and his paper was removed from the BYU database.

Jones has told Visibility911.com, "In short, the paper explodes the official story that 'no evidence' exists for explosive/pyrotechnic materials in the WTC buildings."

Parts of the report mention other studies being conducted by the scientists that will come out soon.

Thermite is the same thing used in Steel Welding and the buildings were made out of Steel sooooo am I missing something ?

Yes, yes you did miss something.

Thermite is also used in steel welding.


edit: tom already got it.

Wait, people still believe that the towers weren't a controlled demolition?  Good God, wake up people.  How many buildings went down that day?  2?  Wrong.  3.  Another building down the street collapsed that day as well for no reason at all.  This like still believing the world is flat.

Larry Silverstein, the owner of the 3 buildings admitted on a PBS documentary shortly after that the buildings were "pulled".  He has since changed his stance and said that wasn't what he meant, but in the demo world, "Pulling a building" means to detonate it.  Tons of firefighters, cops, and others at the scene reported hearing explosions in the building, there was a countdown heard over scanners / radios just prior to the collapse, etc etc etc

I mean there is soooooooooooooo much evidence I can't possibly go into detail here.

Check this site - hundreds of architects and engineers (high-credentialed individuals) from all over the world have come together to demand that congress re-investigate.

Welcome to Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth!
 
 628  architectural and engineering professionals
and  3340  other supporters including A&E students
have signed the petition demanding of Congress
a truly independent investigation.



I've mentioned this before, but one of the women aboard that flight that crashed in Buffalo was a 9/11 widow.  She had just been in DC the week prior and met w/ Obama about a new investigation, and he was sympathetic to pushing for this investigation.  There was another very important woman politically on that flight as well.  Killed 2 birds with one stone.  Also, a direct threat to Obama to not even consider a new investigation.
