The government maintains that the Twin Towers were each hit by aircraft and
the subsequent fires weakened the steel in the upper stories, initiating a
gravity-driven "pancake collapse," as illustrated in Figure 30. There are many
problems with this hypothesis. The most obvious problem with it is the near
free-fall speed of the destruction of these buildings (see
A second problem is the paucity of remaining
material. Where are the concrete floors? Where is the office furniture? Where
is the office machinery? Where are the filing cabinets? Where is the wall
board? Where are the bookcases? They were not there, so most of it appears to
have turned to dust, as illustrated in Figure 31.

should be at least 1/8 of the original building height (12.5%).
of what the actual destruction looked like. The rubble pile was no more
than 2% of the original building height. Both towers went "poof."
