Magnetic forces to blame for 9/11 tower collapse

Scientists can finally explain why the Twin Towers collapsed on September 11, despite the temperature of the fires being well below the 1,500C melting point of the steel girders holding up the buildings.

The discovery that unusual magnetic forces within the girders made them weak at temperatures of about 500C explains away the conspiracy theories that have spread like wildfire since the disaster.

Sergei Dudarev, of the UK Atomic Energy Agency, found that steel loses its strength above 500C because its molecules undergo a physical transition from one state to another due to magnetic fluctuations. "The steel didn't melt, it just became soft. It is an unusual state and the temperatures in the Twin Towers were high enough to cause it because the thermal insulation was knocked off the girders through the impact with the aircraft," he said.

"Understanding how materials behave means we can find the right 'medicine' to make steel stronger at high temperatures... and if our work can be used for other applications, such as safeguarding tall buildings against disasters, so much the better," he said.

Is it April?

Can anyone confirm it is not April 1st?

This is just ridiculous

It's far more likely that patriotic physics, not magnetic forces, were to blame - see

"patriotic physics"

I love it!

An Entirely New Phenomenon...

"we will call "Particle Adulterant" where particles let loose of their adjacent partners
as monogamy suddenly and inexplicably lost its allure during the moderate, but sufficient
heat of the moment causing the steel to lose its strength and will, then inevitably
succumb to temptation, much as society collapses when promiscuity prevails.
Understanding how materials behave means we can find the right 'medicine' to
make steel stronger at moderate temperatures... and if our work can be used for other
applications, such as restoring a crumbling myth, so much the better",
he said.

Dark Energy??

This is a practical example of the effects of 'dark enery' that is causing the whole universe to collapse. NIST will be so proud when they collect their Nobel prizes for completely redefining our understanding of the laws of the Universe.


the transition was completed when the steel reached 911 °Celsius."

What a coincidence!

Dark suckers

Is this like saying light bulbs are dark suckers?

google it. quite amusing

just remember when your light bulb gets full of the dark it quits working.


I laughed out loud!

...a simple office fire can alter the magnetic properties of the steel framing, making it soft, despite all quality control tests that showed the structural steel can withstand much hotter temperatures without softening.

All buildings in your downtown area will now be swiftly demolished due to this new phenomenon that makes all skyscrapers dangerous tinderboxes.
