We know much about that day. We know about the deaths. We know about the controversy surrounding the official story and actual evidence. We know how our society changed abruptly.
What is interesting to me, as an engineer with over 20 years experience and having conducted countless forensic investigations, is how few people can see 1.2 million tons of concrete (3 buildings in total) turned to powder in 8 seconds and not wonder where all that energy came from.
Where is the seismic data showing what happens to the earth when a 500,000 ton pile of steel and concrete falls to the ground at near free fall speeds? We actually have bench marks to draw from on this topic because many large buildings have been collapsed–so we know what is suppose to happen.
Most engineers know that the study of blowing things up is a mature area of research. There is lots of data. Many men love blowing things up. We can calculated the velocities of a shock wave from photos; we can calculate the energy needed to create the kind of event that took place on 911.
The problem is that using conventional physics and trying to fit the known data from that day into these models doesn’t work. No one has been able to do it! And no one has tried harder than NIST who have considerable resources to throw at this problem.
