iron spheres found in dust samples.
The iron microspheres (as evidence for thermite) were debunked years ago, but they keep coming up. The bottom line is:
Iron Microspheres form from condensed vaporized iron or from molten iron
You can melt iron by igniting it with a Bic lighter, if the pieces of iron are thin enough.
There are several other sources of iron microspheres
Iron microspheres were expected in the WTC dust
Close. Whatever hit the Pentagon was more missile like than plane like.
Bringing Closure to the 9/11 Pentagon Debate
The Missile Hypothesis
The missile hypothesis cannot explain the spatial characteristics of the physical damage. The light poles were effectively 100 feet apart, and the generator-trailer and low concrete wall were effectively 43 feet apart. These objects could not all have been impacted by a missile. The shape and size of the impact hole precludes a missile, the damaged internal columns were spaced apart over a wide area, and the bowed and abraded columns could not have been rendered in such a condition by a missile. A missile could possibly have created the C ring hole, but only plane parts were found in the debris in the AE Drive.
Donald Rumsfeld alluded to a missile, and eyewitness Mike Walter spoke of a missile, but in the metaphorical sense of a plane acting as a missile. These comments fueled the missile hypothesis. But no witnesses claimed to have seen a missile. Witnesses overwhelmingly described a large plane. The missile hypothesis fails the test of the scientific method and the analysis shows the hypothesis is false.
Close. Plasma is a high energy state of matter. Dustification is a term getting used to describe steel turning to dust. I prefer the term evaporation.
Now, you show a pic of lightning hitting the antenna of the north tower, again, I don't know why.
Lightning is a naturally occurring electrostatic discharge during which two electrically charged regions in the atmosphere or ground temporarily equalize themselves, causing the instantaneous release of as much as one billion joules of energy. This discharge may produce a wide range of electromagnetic radiation, from very hot plasma created by the rapid movement of electrons to brilliant flashes of visible light in the form of black-body radiation. Lightning causes thunder, a sound from the shock wave which develops as gases in the vicinity of the discharge experience a sudden increase in pressure. Lightning occurs commonly during thunderstorms and other types of energetic weather.
WTC hit by a lightning
There's Way More Energy in a Bolt of Lightning Than We Thought
Power is energy per time, and our measurements of fulgurites suggest that megajoules of energy make rock in thousandths to millionths of seconds. So a gigawatt is actually on the low side – lightning power may be a thousand times that, reaching into the terawatts, though the average is probably tens of gigawatts.
That’s enough energy to power about a billion houses, albeit only for a few millionths of a second. Unfortunately, given its sporadic and unpredictable nature, no power grid will ever be able to harness lightning effectively.
But with that much power, perhaps breaking the space-time continuum in a souped-up Delorean is not so unfeasible after all….

Failure of Welded Floor Truss Connections from the Exterior Wall during Collapse of the World Trade Center Towers
Analysis of the connections supporting the composite floor system of the WTC towers showed that at and below the im- pact floors, the greater majority (above 90%) of the floor truss connections were either bent downward or completely re- moved from the exterior column. This was probably related to the overloading of the floors below the impact region after col- lapse initiation. Depending upon weld joint geometry, detachment of the main load-bearing seats was a result of either fracture in the heat affected zone of the base material (standoff plate detached from spandrel) or through the weld metal (seat angle detached from standoff plate). Failure in both cases was assumed to be a result of a shear mechanism as a result of overloading from floors above impacting those below. There did not appear to be a significant change in distribution of failure modes of the floor truss connections when comparing those connections inside vs. outside of the impact region or those ex- posed to pre-collapse fires and those that were not.

I class flying an aircraft of 100 000+ kg at over 200m/sec into the upper floors delivering 50 000+ litres of accelerant (jet fuel) which ignited on impact as being pretty unconventional for the mainstream demolition business.

Take a look at this pic.
What do you see?
Hijackers' remains found at World Trade Centre site
The discoveries were made during the gruesome ongoing process of identifying all those who perished in the 9/11 attacks
I wonder why there's a single central trail at all because the fuel tanks on a 767 are in the wings and there's two of them to the left and to the right of center?
It's easy to understand how your mind might be blown.
That is rather what happens to some individuals when they are confronted with facts and reality that conflict with their view of the world, their idea of reality.
The same thing happened to me in 2006 when I realized for the first time that the official story I had believed in since 2001 was shattered.
I experienced the same cognitive dissonance then that you seem to be experiencing now.
He does show where you can see all the timed charges going off quite well. It does take a little to know what to look for with each charge puffing out, but when you see it, it all adds ups.
It could not have come from the planes as MOST of it should've burnt in that explosion on impact. Only logic, so there had to be something else to make 2 TOWERS, NOT 1 BUT 2 TOWERS collapse as they did. Weird... 2 towers on the same day and they both fell the very same way. Coincidence? Nah, the very same people did the controlled demolition on the 2 towers. You are blind or have an agenda... pick one
I don't care where some columns landed, you can shove them up... you know where. Watching the towers go down is enough proof for me.
I'm not the one pushing an agenda here
Unreal how you get away with all your BS on here.
Only idiots would post the same copy/paste pictures and posts a thousand times. Instead of posting very selective pictures of the collapse, why don't you show us an ACTUAL VIDEO of the collapse? You won't because then it would be too obvious of a CONTROL DEMOLITION and then you would look like a fool.
AGAIN: Where did the extreme heat come from is MOST of the fuel burnt in the initial impact?
CONTROL DEMOLITION still did the job.
There is no way on earth that 3 buildings would collapse the very same way, on their own footprints all on the same day, same event and 1 building never got hit by a plane. Go figure.

Copy and paste is getting boring mate.
Grow up and stop trolling
Stupid question... get a life
Just before the 'plane' arrives he's just standing there holding the gas meter like he seems to be waiting for something.
Jules and Gédéon Naudet
On the morning of September 11, Jules accompanied several firefighters as they headed out to investigate reports of a gas leak in Lower Manhattan, leaving Gédéon in the firehouse to continue filming with Benetatos.
