Iron rich? Well, didnt you notice the spikes? There is more oxygen than iron. Ergo its more oxygen rich than iron, wouldnt you say? yes I can see the iron, but it sure as hell isnt majority iron. Why the heck do I need a panel of experts to confirm what i say? Anyone with a functioning ability to think critically and have common sense, one can see how these spheres are NOT pure elemental iron spheres, ar enot majority
The obvious "new scenario" that is pushed by this side of the "TM" posits that this material "burned through" structural members, internally, and thus GRAVITY took over, and the collapse of the buildings progressed. Hmmmmm.... Seems to me that type of collapse would look very similar to what happens when a central area of a building, after being subjected to extreme impact damage (high-velocity, heavy airplane) which damages/destroys several/many critical supporting structural members AND endures the subsequent out-of-control fires and heat....AFTER this area is compromised, and it can no longer support the weight of the section of building that is above it....collapse is inevitable.
...which is what we see in every video of the collapses.
Does it seem a good time to point out, yet again, that thermite/thermate/nano-XXXXXmxte (whatever) doesn't "explode"? Hello? Bueller?? I see the constantly shifting winds of the "TM", flip-flopping back and forth...."controlled demolition" ('demolition' implies explosives...things go BOOM!, right?)...as the means that 'felled' the Towers. Nevermind there are NO loud sequential explosins heard, nor seen. Therefore, the concept of the "silent but deadly" thermite/thermate/nano-XXXXXmxte had to crop up and be trotted out for the "TM" masses, yes? SO...this material, as shown in countless videos that demonstrte its effectiveness, sits there and "burns through" steel, etc. Doesn't 'blow up', am I correct?
YET....characteristically, and puzzlingly, other sects of the "TM" stridently shout about the "controlled demolition" (explosives) that felled the Towers, and point out the lateral movement of material, AS the collapse sequences progress. (NOT before, mind you....AS it is happening...) Why is it, please, that those who are so rabidly convinced of planned destruction, somehow pre-set and pre-meditated, can't even agree on the method, but instead contradict one another??
Ok, my head is starting to hurt.
I showed you both specs for the spheres. Which sphere has more iron than oxygen? Answer none. This looks more like its oxygen rich than iron rich.
Also I dont see the USGS saying these are thermite made sphere, do you? if you can find me a composition of magic nanu nanu thermite that contains all the extras found in the sphere that will be helpful.
Are you aware of a little something called "fly ash"? It is an ingredient in concrete. Gee, maybe when the towers collapsed, crushing all that concrete, these spheres were released from it? There are many more sources of these "iron-rich" spheres than thermites.

If they were actually nano-thermite, there would be nothing partial about the combustion. Why do you think such a "highly engineered" demolition material would go out after it started burning?
If anything at all, the buildings should have fallen over at the point of impact.
And building 7 wasn't hit by a plane at all.
Yet they announced that it already collapsed 30 minutes before the actual collapse.
Three modern steel frame buildings went down on the same day in their own foot prints.

That's what I thought until I did a little research. Modern steel frame buildings never collapse like that. If anything at all, the buildings should have fallen over at the point of impact. And building 7 wasn't hit by a plane at all. Yet they announced that it already collapsed 30 minutes before the actual collapse. Three modern steel frame buildings went down on the same day in their own foot prints.
All debunkers have failed to show me one steel frame building, in all of history, that has totally collapsed, without CONTROLLED DEMOLITION. Maybe you should show me one?
Dammed educated people.
Since iron oxide is the oxidizer in thermite, it should be consumed in the reaction, should it not?

It's also an ingredient in some forms of thermite, so there may be something unusual.
