really. acetylene torches? that is completely wrong. there is NOTHING to do with acetylene torches.
Well, on page 15, Step 5, tell me what they are doing? I read it. It is written so a layman can understand what they are trying to accomplish and they
did not find anything but a...it might be....
they are USING an acetylene torch, yes. but it's not like you said:

Actually, This thread should be closed for misidentifying itself in the title as there was NO active super thermite found. Just some concrete and
....."and nothing else". the way you have it worded, you make it sound like the experiment (was executed solely with and) showed that acetylene
torches and paint were identified as the SOURCE of these MYSTERIOUS red/gray layers. the torch was used to determine the material's reaction to
heat. it IGNITED at 430˚C and created an orange flow which when cooled was shown to be contain iron microspheres similiar to the ones previously
noted as MYSTERIOUS in other dust samples, and the PAINT tested under the same condition melted into a pile of fine black ash.
you ignore the microscopic chemical analysis. "torches and nothing else" is flat wrong. anyway, hopefully people will READ THE PAPER and judge for
other tests done identify the microscopic structure of the material and comparing it to ACTUAL paint.
there was no concrete and paint found, and that is the opposite of the conclusions of the paper. there are nine scientists that came to the
conclusions, and your bad misinterpretation of what's in the paper is slightly infuriating.
here's the abstract.
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.
Keywords: Scanning electron microscopy, X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy, Differential scanning calorimetry, DSC analysis, World Trade Center, WTC
dust, 9/11, Iron-rich microspheres, Thermite, Super-thermite, Energetic nanocomposites,
"torches". is an electron scanning microscope a 'torch'? an optical microscope? an x-ray dispersive spectroscope? differential scanning
and, 'this thread should be closed'? can't stand the heat, get out of the laboratory. the experiment CONCLUDED the material is thermitic, and
more energetic than regular thermite (hence, "super-thermite"). do your own study to refute, but don't LIE about what is in this study. paint and
concrete is not thermitic.
