"What in the World is High-tech Explosive Material Doing in the Dust Clouds Generated on 9/11/2001?", presented by Steven Jones Ph.D., Physics Professor Emeritus, Brigham Young University on April 30th 2009, Sacramento California.
This talk reveals the discovery of tiny chips of "nanothermite" in the World Trade Center dust from 9/11. Thermite is an incendiary compound invented in 1893, and is made by mixing powders of iron oxide (rust) and aluminum.
Once ignited, the aluminum grabs and bonds to the oxygen from the iron oxide. This reaction releases clouds of aluminum oxide and generates very high temperatures in the elemental iron. This high temperature iron easily melts steel. Tiny spheres of iron (not steel) were also discovered in the WTC dust, and are evidence that a thermite reaction took place on 9/11.
Nanothermite, a highly engineered energetic nanocomposite, was conceived around 1990 and by 2000 had been weaponized and was manufactured in large quantities in top secret military laboratories. This form of thermite does not just burn extremely hot, it is explosive!
In this video, Dr. Steven Jones announces the publication of the recent paper: Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe published in April, 2009. The implications of this new peer reviewed paper are profound.
Jones also updates us on various facets of the quest to repudiate the "official conspiracy theory" about 9/11, and describes current efforts to create a legitimate investigation with real subpoena power.
