Letter to the Baltimore Sun:
NIST Should Examine Physical 911 Evidence (9/26/03)

Published on 9/26/03 by the Sun
The article "Interviews will examine why trade center collapsed" (The Sun, Sept. 18) informed us that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is hiring a contractor to interview more than 1,300 people to "determine the physical sequence of events that led to the collapse of the New York City landmark."

The article also notes that the Federal Emergency Management Agency attributed the collapses of the twin towers to "intense heat [which] softened the structural steel to the point of collapse."

It seems strange that the NIST would seek to interview survivors and witnesses rather than examine the existing documentation, which is now strewn all across the Internet. The pictures and videos all show black, seemingly oxygen-deprived smoke leaving the burning towers.

The FEMA report estimates that temperatures reached 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit in some areas. However, blast furnaces don't normally leave large amounts of black smoke. This temperature also would easily melt aluminum, shatter windows and be visible as red light in exterior photos. None of these indicators of extreme heat have appeared in any of the extant documentation.

NIST has many mysteries to address. It should inspect the physical evidence instead of interviewing large numbers of people to solve them.
