The Twin Towers Collapse


Did you know that Thousands of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth ( state that the three skyscrapers at the World Trade Center were destroyed on 9/11 as a result of professionally engineered controlled demolition, not by office fires and/or aircraft collision.  This subject has nothing to do with the "conspiracy theories" that the establishment press so often touts in connection with 9/11. Rather, their proof of controlled demolition is a matter of cold, technical, forensic evidence.

Below the Twin Towers collapse from a vantage point rarely seen.


If you dropped a bowling ball from the top of one of the twin towers it would take the ball about 10 seconds to hit the ground.  The Twin Towers collapsed in about 10 seconds, how is that possible?  The bowling ball would be falling at free fall speed which means it had no resistance.  The Towers did have resistance, floor after floor after floor and tons of steel columns but yet it fell at free fall speed.  That is physically impossible unless the Twin Towers collapsed because of a controlled demolition or by some other devious means but definitely not by aeroplanes and a fire.

Below is part of the statement read by Richard Gage, AIA, to the media at the AE911Truth press conference at the National Press Club in Washington DC on September 9, 2010:

“As a group, we now have more than 1,270 architect and engineer petition signers.  Collectively, we have more than 25,000 years of building and technical experience.  Today, we’re here to inform you that we have uncovered evidence that the official investigations into what happened to the World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11 were deeply flawed, or worse.  The scientific forensic facts we have discovered have very troubling implications.  This follows the discovery, by the United States Geological Survey and others, of high concentrations of unusual previously molten iron-rich microspheres in the WTC dust. These microspheres can only have been formed during the destruction of the World Trade Center at temperatures far higher than can be explained by the jet fuel and office fires.  More than two dozen firefighters, engineers, and other witnesses reported seeing substantial quantities of molten iron or steel, flowing like lava in the debris under all three World Trade Center high-rises. Office fires and jet fuel cannot possibly reach the temperatures necessary to liquefy iron or steel.  A mixture called thermite, consisting of pulverized iron oxide and aluminum, CAN generate temperatures above 4000°F — far more than is needed to melt iron or steel, which melts at about 2750°F.  The energetic material that was found in the WTC dust by an international team of scientists (led by Niels Harrit of the University of Copenhagen in Denmark) was reported in the peer-reviewed Bentham Open Journal of Chemical Physics. 


This need makes it all the more disturbing that top engineers in charge of the government’s investigation would avoid dealing straightforwardly with ALL the evidence that AE911Truth and others have repeatedly brought to their attention such as”:

1.  Both Twin Towers were completely dismembered and destroyed in just 10 to 14 seconds – which occurs at near free-fall acceleration. For this to happen, all 47 of their massive core columns as well as a large fraction of their external columns would have to be compromised with explosives beforehand.

2.  More than 100 first responders reported hearing explosions and seeing flashes of light at the onset of destruction.  Light flashes indicate explosive detonations.  These witnesses are documented in NYC’s “Oral Histories” by City Fire Commissioner Thomas Von Essen

3.  Multi-ton steel perimeter wall sections were ejected laterally at 60 mph to a distance of 600 ft.  That speed and distance indicates that a high-pressure explosion initiated the ejection.

4.  90,000 tons of concrete and metal decking was pulverized in mid-air, again indicating explosions.

5.  World Trade Center 7, a 47-story building which was not hit by an aircraft, fell at free-fall acceleration for more than 100 feet – a significant fact that NIST’s Shyam Sunder was forced to admit after being presented with our research. Yet NIST has failed to review or acknowledge the obvious implications of this fact, which is that the columns must have been explosively severed within fractions of a second of each other.

6.   The complete destruction and dismemberment of Building 7, collapsing in just 6 ½ seconds—which is near freefall acceleration—through the path of what was greatest resistance, symmetrically vertical, including 2 ½ seconds of pure free-fall (zero resistance), is an occurrence only possible with expertly-placed explosives.

“For eight years, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth has sought an impartial, subpoena-powered investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001.  On February 14, 2013, AE911Truth petitioned the office of Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., district attorney in and for New York County, asking Vance for a confidential meeting with him and/or with any members of his staff he chose to designate. Our purpose in requesting this meeting was to discuss the appointment of a special prosecutor, and the calling of a grand jury, to investigate the explosive 12-second destruction of each of the Twin Towers, and the unprecedented free-fall "collapse" of Building 7 on 9/11.  We made a formal offer of proof based on the evidence — forensic evidence that overwhelmingly and irrefutably shows, by itemization of the key facts and by supplemental video of important witnesses, that the three skyscrapers at the World Trade Center were destroyed on 9/11 as a result of professionally engineered controlled demolition, not by office fires and/or aircraft collision.  This subject has nothing to do with the "conspiracy theories" that the establishment press so often touts in connection with 9/11. Rather, our proof of controlled demolition is a matter of cold, technical, forensic evidence.  However, it is obvious now that we have in the United States a conspiracy of silence by those holding powerful positions who do not want 9/11 investigated.” – Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (


Watch this revealing professional documentary about the collapse of the Twin Towers which is part of the 5 hour documentary of the movie 'September 11th the New Pearl Harbor'.  It shows you it was definitely a controlled demolition that brought down both towers.  Did you know that fires burned at ground zero for 3 months after 9/11 with temperatures up to 2800 degrees centigrade, which is not possible from office fires.





















The reality is, NIST’s official technical explanation is fraudulent and inconsistent with the basic laws of physics.  By contrast, the suggestion of controlled demolition is consistent with all of the available technical evidence.

The 9/11 truth movement which is mostly scientists, architects, structural engineers (some of whom are known for having designed steel high rise buildings) and fireman state that the known evidence does not support neither the NIST reports nor the 9/11 Commission Report. They say that the explanation that the government has provided is wrong or a lie, same thing.  It is not a conspiracy theory to examine the evidence and to state that the evidence does not support the explanation that has been given.








Nano-thermite explosives were gathered from the WTC debris shortly after the towers fell on 9/11.  Brigham Young University Physics Professor, Dr. Steven Jones, discovered the explosives and joined an international team of nine scientists for further analysis.  Through extensive laboratory testing, the scientists concluded that the samples were Nano Thermitic explosives. Nano Thermite is only used by the military and not someone sitting in a cave in Afghanistan (Bin Laden).  Besides if the Towers were brought down by explosion then that rules out the fairy story of 19 Arab hijackers and it was the Jews who had control of the Twin Towers and not the Arabs.

In the Youtube video below Professor Steve Jones shows us evidence that Nano-Thermite was used to bring down the Twin Towers.

In the ruins of the WTC there are many sources confirming that molten metal was present.  The April 1, 2002 WASTE AGE describes New York Sanitation Department workers moving “everything from molten steel beams to human remains.” A September 11, 2002 report in Government Computer News ( quotes Greg Fuchek, vice-president of sales for LinksPoint Inc as stating: “In the first few weeks, sometimes when a worker would pull a steel beam from the wreckage, the end of the beam would be dripping molten steel.”  A June 29, 2002 messenger-inquirer ( recounts the experiences of Bronx firefighter “Toolie” O’Toole, who stated that some of the beams lifted from deep within the catacombs of Ground Zero by cranes were “dripping from molten steel.”

A publication by the National Environmental Health Association ( quotes Ron Burger, a public health advisor at the National Center for Environmental Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who arrived at Ground Zero on the evening of September 12.  Burger stated: “Feeling the heat, seeing the molten steel, the layers upon layers of ash, like lava, it reminded me of Mt. St. Helen’s and the thousands who fled that disaster.” 


An article in The Newsletter of the Structural Engineers Association of Utah (SEAU News, page 3) describing a speaking appearance by Leslie Robertson, a structural engineer responsible for the design of the World Trade Center, contains this passage: “As of 21 days after the attack, the fires were still burning and the molten steel was still running.”

Thermite burns at a temperature of 4,500 degrees Fahrenheit. This is well above the 2,800 degrees Fahrenheit melting point of iron or steel.  It can cut through steel like a hot knife through butter.

The last fire in the debris piles wasn’t extinguished until December 19, 2001, more than three months after 9/11.  Jet fuel and office fires can’t burn hot enough to do that or to melt core steel columns to molten steel.


The evidence for the presence of thermite at the site of the Twin Towers on 9/11 is extensive and compelling.  Below are the main points of evidence for Nano-Thermite at the WTC.

  1. Molten metal: There are numerous photographs and eyewitness testimonies to the presence of molten metal at the WTC, both in the buildings and in the rubble. No legitimate explanation has been provided for this evidence other than the exothermic reaction of thermite, which generates the temperatures required and molten iron as a product.

  2. The fires at Ground Zero could not be put out for several months. Despite the application of millions of gallons of water to the pile, several rainfall events at the site, and the use of a chemical fire suppressant, the fires would not subside. Thermal images made by satellite showed that the temperatures in the pile were far above that expected in the debris from a typical structure fire. Only thermite, which contains its own oxidant and therefore cannot be extinguished by smothering it, can explain this evidence.

  3. Numerous eyewitnesses who were fleeing the area described the air mass as a hot wind filled with burning particles.  This evidence agrees with the presence of large quantities of thermite byproducts in the air, including hot metallic microspheres and still-reacting agglomerates of thermite.

  4. Numerous vehicles were scorched or set on fire in the area. Photographic evidence shows that cars parked within the lower-level garage areas of the WTC complex burned as if impacted by a super-hot wind like that described by the eyewitnesses. All non-metallic parts of the cars, including the plastic, rubber, and glass, were completely burned off by a hot blast.

  5. There was a distinct “white smoke” present—clearly different from smoke caused by a normal structural fire—as indicated by eyewitnesses and photographic evidence.[2]The second major product of the thermite reaction is aluminium oxide, which is emitted as a white solid shortly after reaction.

  6. Peer-reviewed, scientific research confirmed the presence of extremely high temperatures at the WTC. The high temperatures were evidenced by metallic and other microspheres, along with evaporated metals and silicates. These findings were confirmed by 9/11 investigators and by scientists at an independent company and at the United States Geologic Survey.

  7. The elemental composition of the metallic microspheres from the WTC dust matches that of metallic microspheres produced by the thermite reaction.

  8. The environmental data collected at Ground Zero in the months following 9/11 indicate that violent incendiary fires, like those produced by thermite, occurred on specific dates. Peer-reviewed scientific analysis of these data show that the components of thermite spiked to extraordinary levels on specific dates in both the air and aerosol emissions at Ground Zero.

  9. Carbon nanotubes have been found in the WTC dust and in the lungs of 9/11 first responders. Formation of carbon nanotubes requires extremely high temperatures, specific metal catalysts, and carbon compounds exactly like those found in Nano thermite formulations. Researchers have discovered that Nano thermite produces the same kinds of carbon nanotubes. That finding has been confirmed by independent analysis in a commercial contract laboratory.

  10. A peer-reviewed scientific publication has identified the presence of Nano thermite in the WTC dust. One of the critical aspects of that paper has been confirmed by an independent scientist.

Frank DeMartini, former construction manager of the World Trade Center, stated, “I believe that each of the Twin Towers probably could sustain multiple impacts by airliners because this structure is like the mosquito netting of your screen door and the jet plane is just a pencil puncturing it. It really does nothing to the screen netting.”

The American Institute of Architects organization’s most prestigious honor is the designation of “Fellow,” which is awarded to members who’ve made contributions of national significance to the profession. Only about 2% of AIA members are Fellows and Daniel B. Barnum is one of them.


Here’s what he has to say about the Twin Towers:  “I have known from Day One that the buildings were imploded and that they could not and would not have collapsed from the damage caused by the airplanes that ran into them".

American Institute of Architects member, Andrew Wolff said: “The free-fall collapse of the fire protected steel-frame structure of World Trade Center 7 could not have been caused by the limited structural damage and office fires which were observed prior to collapse”.


Many fireman at the Twin Towers heard explosions going off before the World Trade Centre towers collapsed which is entirely consistent with a controlled demolition. Of the South Tower, firefighter Richard Banaciski said: “There was just an explosion. It seemed like on television when they blow up these buildings. It seemed like it was going all the way round like a belt . . . all those explosions”.


Colleague Kenneth Rogers heard them, too. He said: “There was an explosion in the South Tower. Floor after floor after floor. One floor under another after another . . . I figured it was a bomb because it looked like a synchronized kind of thing”.

Assistant New York Fire Commissioner on 9/11 Stephen Gregory said: “I thought that when I looked in the direction of the Trade Center before it came down, before Number Two came down, that I saw low-level flashes. In my conversation with Lieutenant Evangelista, never mentioning this to him, he questioned me and asked if I saw low-level flashes in front of the building, and I agreed with him… I saw a flash-flash-flash, and then it looked like the building came down. … No, the lower level of the building.  You know like when they demolish a building, how they blow up a building, when it falls down?  That’s what I thought I saw.”

 “It was like a professional demolition where they set the charges on certain floors and then you hear ‘Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop’.” - Paramedic Daniel Rivera.

Other Buildings on Fire didn’t Collapse

No high rise building has ever collapsed because of fires, fact.  The One New York Plaza in lower Manhattan caught fire after an explosion in 1970 and it burned for six hours but it did not collapse.  Eight floors of the Meridian Plaza in Philadelphia burnt for 18 hours in 1991 but it did not collapse.  Don’t forget that World Trade Centre Tower 2 burnt for 56 minutes before collapsing.

The Grenfell Tower fire in London was a major fire at a 24-storey 220-foot (70 m) block of flats on June 14 2017. The tower was on fire for 24 hours but did not collapse.  Look at the extreme fire in the Grenfell tower and then look at the comparatively small fire at the Twin Towers.

The Grenfell tower did not collapse after burning for 24 hours but the first twin Tower collapsed after some of the upper floors burnt for 56 minutes.  Not possible.

On the night of February 12, 2005, a fire started in the Windsor building in Madrid, Spain, a 32-story tower framed in steel-reinforced concrete (photo below). At its peak, the fire, which burned for almost a day, completely engulfed the upper ten stories of the building.

The Windsor building (above) burnt for 20 hours but did not collapse.  In comparison look at the fires in the Twin Towers.  Below the Windsor Building after the fire, still standing.  The first Twin Tower collapsed in under one hour.

The most recent example of a spectacular skyscraper fire was the burning of the Hotel Mandarin Oriental (below) starting on February 9, 2009. The nearly completed 520-foot-tall skyscraper in Beijing, China caught fire and was engulfed within 20 minutes, and burned for at least 3 hours. Despite the fact that the fire extended across all of the floors for a period of time and burned out of control for hours, no large portion of the structure collapsed.

How come the raging fires in the Grenfell Tower, Windsor Building and the Hotel Mandarin did not melt the steel iBeams causing them to collapse but the relatively small fires in the Twin Towers did melt the iBeams causing them to collapse, according to the official story.  Because the official story is a lie.  Fires could not have caused the collapse of the Twin Towers as thousands of Architects and Engineers have stated, only explosives could.

But you will probably say ah yes but they were not hit by planes.  On July 28, 1945, a B-25 bomber crashed into the 79th floor of the Empire State Building, the world’s tallest building at the time. Five floors were burnt and it took about three hours to put out the fire but it did not collapse.  The Empire State Building was built using technology from 90 years ago (1930), The World Trade Centre buildings were much stronger (built 1972) and were designed to withstand an aeroplane crashing into it.

In other words, planting explosives within a building at carefully preselected locations is the ONLY way to bring down a building on to its footprint. Conversely, if a building falls on to its footprint, we can be certain that explosives were planted within it.  Molten steel in the debris of the Twin Towers means Nano thermite explosives were used.

But terrorists from Afghanistan would not be able to sneak past building security and stay hidden during the time they would need to plant explosives at carefully preselected locations. Even a domestic terrorist group would not be able to do this.  Only those who own the Twin Towers and manage the security at the Towers would be able to do this and we know it was the Jewish Zionists who controlled the Twin Towers.
