Actually 4 passports were recovered (hijackers) from all of the planes. Found this interesting article...
What else was on the street, and why couldn’t a passport have made it intact?
If you’re still not sure, preferring to go with intution and say survival was impossible, then consider this story from the Columbia Space Shuttle
disaster. The craft broke up on re-entry, 40 miles about the earth, and debris fell over a wide area. Amongst this was one of the experiments
involving tiny worms.
The worms and moss were in the same nine-pound locker located in the mid-deck of the space shuttle. The worms were placed in six canisters, each
holding eight petri dishes.
The worms, which are about the size of the tip of a pencil, were part of an experiment testing a new synthetic nutrient solution. The worms, which
have a life cycle of between seven and 10 days, were four or five generations removed from the original worms placed on Columbia in January.
Remarkably, not only were the canisters retrieved, but the worms were still alive (the above link tells you more). Who would have believed that? Not
the scientist in charge of the experiment, who said in the same story:
``It's pretty astonishing to get the possibility of data after all that has happened,'' Sack said. ``We never expected it. We expected a molten
In fact if we wanted to start a “Columbia space shuttle crash never happened” conspiracy site then that would make great “evidence”, because
it goes against what you’d expect. And there’s a great quote, too. But then maybe intuition doesn’t tell the whole story, and more can survive
explosions than you think.
My husband was one of the first responders and after telling me what they saw, I think anything could have survived.
