TO THE WIND!

This video needs to put into the hands of every scientist we can find. Make a few hundred DVD's (you can get 600 for under $200) and visit every engineering firm in town.

Jumbo Jets Can Not Demolish Skyscrapers!

boycott flashplayer!!

Could people get a clue and stop posting videos to sites that don't allow downloads????

Is there a portable copy of this video anywhere?

I agree

I'd like to slap the crap out of whom ever put such an important video on such a horrible and worthless format.

Have tried for hours so far and have only seen 1 min and 18 seconds of it and it has nothing to do with my connection, I'm on a 8MB/s cable connection.

Dowloads

Here is how I make FLV videos portable. I use a Maxthon 2 browser (free download). It has a file sniffer built in. When viewing a page with SWF (or any type of 'non-downloadable' file I switch on the file sniffer.

The result, in this case is a location: http://blip.tv/file/get/NetVidProductions-HowTheTowesFell419.flv that can be copied and pasted into the browser bar. This initiates a download dialog.

Once saved to my PC I use a program live Riva FLV Encoder (free) to convert the file to MPEG or AVI. I do this to show friends and family the file who do not have broadband and or (gasp) Flash installed on their machines.

To be ultra portable you can pick up a simple USB flash drive, load it with VLC Media Player Portable. VLC will play just about anything and there is no need to install anything on the host computer and it saves you time re-encoding the file to a more appropriate format.

Hope this helps!

Apparently this video should be available

within a week and will be called something like "Blueprint for 9/11 truth" or something similar.
For those that can not watch this video you can at least hear it in full right here.

Straight Through The Heart

Straight Through The Heart

Another great lecture

I wish someone would correct the "600,000 pound beam was ejected horizontally across the street" quote. If engineers are watching this, it's a minor mistake, but sticks in the minds of "technical folk".

I hope Gage catches it. There are many other sources which talk about the beam.

Other than that, I always enjoy his lectures.

600,000 pound steel beam

When I first heard this figure for the exterior beam assembly ('assembly' would be a better term than 'beam') that was stuck in the AMEX building at approximately the 20th floor, I thought it was way too large also. However, the 600k estimate is evidently one that was given by FEMA officials and appeared on their web site. It may still be there for all I know.

On what basis do you say that the 600k figure is not correct (or in the ballpark - it's an estimate)? If you have any means of estimating a better weight for this assembly, please share it with us. What are the "many other sources" that you reference?

Just looking for truth...

"600,000 Beam "

Yes - I cringe everytime I play that portion of the 9/11 Mysteries clip. I show a correction on my slide below the movie clip that notes that "20,000 lb steel structure assemblies were ejected laterally up to 500 feet".

Richard Gage, AIA, Architect

Brilliant ... I sat through everything

Finally, someone with a balanced
mind, professionally skilled,
world-class educated, and
with proper maturity explains
the matter correctly ... rather
than ranting, agitating, associating
a hidden agenda, political discourse
of a Bush attack to 911 truth.

Really good presentation.

Plus+

He's got a clarity and a sense of necessary emphasis in his style that Stephen Jones, for all his other wonderful qualities, lacks.

The most SANE reporter out there

is Richard Gage. He calls it like it is - he doesn't beat around the bush and he presents the evidence so coherently that only a fool or a demon would deny it.

Thanx so much Richard

I am curious where this

I am curious where this presentation ( or other presentations by richard gage) can be obtained on dvd. Does anyone know which website it can be purchased from?

Gage presentation

This film takes forever to load ( on Comcast cable) and locks up or cuts out halfway through- I have been unable to view more than half after trying 4 times. Please cut it into segments or whatever so we can see the whole thing without spending a whole day trying.

Questions still remain

Could it be possible to test any animals that lived near the towers for proof that there was a controlled demolition? Is there any substance which might be found in forensic or veterinary analysis which can be attributed to this? If so, how long does this substance or substances remain in the body? Can we also use this same analysis on people, both alive or dead?

Why is it that I have seen that the maximum capacity of these buildings on a normal business morning is 10k people PER BUILDING, but we only hear about 3k or so perishing, and many, many people are still reported as "missing"? Is this true, that the two towers could hold this demo capacity, and, if it is, why is no one from the national polity questioning the official numbers on the death toll? If this is true, does this mean the death toll is more around the tens of thousands?

Those are just off the top of my head.

This was a good video presentation. Highly credible. Very professional.

I would not just email him on his lonesome...

Too easy for him to press the DELETE key...

Same goes for letters to reporters and columnists, always CC the editorial, sales team etc.

For some additional emails at NIST, see : http://www.nist.gov/public_affairs/contact.htm

Good luck and best wishes

Rattling NIST

I am sure I can get John Gross' attention so that he at least reads my email. I called him this morning, but he basically refused to answer my question which was whether or not he was standing by the "lie through his teeth" (as Richard Gage puts it) regarding having heard of no witnesses to molten metal at ground zero. Gross requested that I contact their public affairs instead, to put part of the point is to put direct pressure on these clowns.

A few months ago, I talked to NIST's Chief Counsel, Michael Rubin, who claimed to collaborate in writing the report (an odd job for an attorney) too. He was much more talkative. I told him I wanted to know NIST proceedures for investigating claims of scientific misconduct, something they may be lawfully required to do:

I can't wait...

for this to be available on DVD. Let us know as soon as it is.

Send DVDs to every NIST employee.

NIST is already on the defensive. I think we need to send DVD copies of Richard Gage's talk to every NIST engineer and scientist, and then follow up with intensive phone calls, emails and faxes. Secretaries and non-technical NIST employees would propabably better be served by some less technical 9/11 documentary like "9/11 Mysteries" by Brad Waddell .

Surely, some dissent within NIST must exist already, we need to tap it and create much more in the process. I think we need to start a 9/11-NIST team to work on refuting, demoralizing, and re-educating NIST as an organization. In short, we need to engage in psychological warfare on NIST as an organization.

Streaming video capture

Here is a neat trick to capture streaming video to one's hard drive. This works on a Mac, I'm not sure how you would go about this on a PC. Use Safari and start the video. Open the activity window, it's in the Window pull down menu at the top of your screen. Notice the file that is starting to stream. It's the biggest file that is measured in MB as opposed to KB. When the file has finished streaming, select it and then hold down the option key and double click the file. It will begin to download to your hard drive and you can watch it's progress in the Downloads window. If it's a Flash file it will have the suffix .flv. You can convert this to DVD format so that you can watch this on your TV. VisualHub is a good program that can accomplish this. Using Toast, you can then make a disk image to keep as a master file that you can use to burn multiple copies if you so desire. Please note that this method is meant to capture files that are posted on the internet and are therefore in the public domain. It is by no means intended to capture copyrighted information and one should use prudence and discretion as to what you are downloading.

A Great Speaker

Richard Gage reminds me of David Ray Griffin. His mannerisms are very similar to DRG's. Intelligent, easy to listen to and very believable. Richard Gage is going to be a very valuable asset to the Truth Movement.

Think Twice

I actually study these issues professionally. There are alot of things about structures that are not explained in this video. And many other issues that are not explained objectively. First off, he started by comparing wood structures and steel. These are two completely different kinds of structural failures during a fire. Wood crumbles and collapses piece by piece and falls down like we see in the movies. Steel though, completely fails and basically goes from 100% strength, to 0% strength. It does not heat up and bend out of shape, then fall. It stays stiff, hit's it's failure temperature, and collapses.

He keeps bringing examples of smaller structures to give a tangibility to the common person. What is hard to grasp is the magnitude of forces in these events. There is no tangibility. I am sorry but unless you have some experience in the field, it is very very difficult to understand how these things work. And even if you are experienced, it is very difficult to view a 24"x24" piece of steel as "weak". Think of this, an earthquake creates so much force that a wall of concrete can easily be pulverized and reduced to dust. When a "10 story" building collapses, a 24"x24" Steel column stays strong and is bent (or fails) to one side, pushing the building and creating asymmetry. This is because that column still has structural value while the collapse is taking place. In this case, when the collapse happens, that column has ZERO structural value. So, you should think of the steel column as "not even existing" the second it breaks. Also in this magnitude of an event, the structure is viewed as a whole. So when a part of the whole breaks, the whole system breaks. When a portion of the system fails (or one steel column), the forces are instantly transfered to the "remaining" structure (which cannot support the load) and therefore causes the instant failure of the "whole". In this structure, the building skin has the sole purpose of stopping shear forces, which is wind or sway left and right... not vertical forces. So when calculating assume zero vertical strength from the skin. And you might say "well it is steel and concrete and it has to..." but you are not correct. Like I said, an event of this magnitude basically makes it's support ZERO.

Ok and the "charge blasts" of smoke and fire (or whatever) he talks about is completely out of wack. If you put a ketchup packet on the ground and step on it.. what happens? ketchup shoots out the sides. So if you have a fire inside a floor, then the floors above collapse on it... what happens? fire and smoke start blasting out of any weaknesses in the building skin. This means they will explode out through glass, and down though chambers (such as stairwells and elevator shafts). It also means that 600,000# pieces of steel and 1/100th of a # bone fragments can be shot out of the building due to the pressure of the floors above squishing down. Now the 15 storys collapsing prior to the stories below collapsing, I'm not sure on that. I can guess that it was just due to heat traveling up, and when the initial floor failed, the weakness of the upper floors caused them to fail before taking out the structure below?

Now, lets think of these "charges". So somehow, over the course of what.. years? terrorists (domestic or foreign) placed thousands and thousands of explosive charges inside every 3 floors of each building? Anticipating that:

1. The Terrorist could fly a Jumbo Jet precisely into the floor that they had planted the initial charges
2. The Jet blasting into the building, or fire after that, didn't set ANY OF these charges off?

Oh, anyone think that the reason the pieces of steel were in 30'-0" sections is because they were installed as 30'-0" sections!!!

but to the point. I have studied this collapse and the "theory" (as he puts it) can be proven true. And actually, it isn't that difficult to prove that the fire caused failure. I have had 3 different courses where 3 different teachers (one Chinese, one German and one Armenian) explained in detail how the collapse took place. And two of the 3 actually said that they had heard the conspiracy theory's and they were crap.

And I stress again, this is not a house falling down or a 20 story building or a 30 story building. This is an event of major magnitude. All the structural forces are at phenominal values. This makes their effect on the structure amazing! the simple pressure of the collapse could generate enough heat to melt a ball of steel. I can go on all day about the absurd statements he made but I won't. Basically I will say this to end:

the reason scientist and engineers have not been moved by this video, is because they watched it and knew it wasn't true

Think again

I'm surprised gswanson's "rebuttal" has gone unanswered in the seven months since it was posted.

S/he (I ll bet on a "he") says "Steel though, completely fails and basically goes from 100% strength, to 0% strength. It does not heat up and bend out of shape, then fall. It stays stiff, hit's it's failure temperature, and collapses."

Except that an open fire on the levels the planes hit were insufficiently hot to weaken the steel. Open fires aren't hot enough to weaken steel girders and pylons - all the fires that have ever occurred in steel frame buildings demonstrate that. How many times does it have to be said that steel framed skyscrapers have never collapsed because of fire?

Thermite and thermate are extremely powerful and hot explosives that can and do blow steel columns and their superstructure apart, and cause the kind of thermal bending of major pylons that were photographed after the incident.

"This is because that column still has structural value while the collapse is taking place. In this case, when the collapse happens, that column has ZERO structural value. So, you should think of the steel column as "not even existing" the second it breaks."

What? The entire unweakened steel structure underneath the levels that were hit suddenly act as if they don't exist because the top floors have weakened? Steel is built for strength and flexibility, and these buildings were designed to take aircraft strikes; even multiple aircraft strikes shouldn't have brought them down.

"When a portion of the system fails (or one steel column), the forces are instantly transfered to the "remaining" structure (which cannot support the load) and therefore causes the instant failure of the "whole". In this structure, the building skin has the sole purpose of stopping shear forces, which is wind or sway left and right... not vertical forces. So when calculating assume zero vertical strength from the skin. And you might say "well it is steel and concrete and it has to..." but you are not correct. Like I said, an event of this magnitude basically makes it's support ZERO."

Rubbish...where's the evidence that this is the case...when has this ever happened? For a progressive collapse, the floors had to bang down floor by floor, pancaking to the ground. There's plenty of footage of buildings which only partially collapsed with at least as much mass above them as started the Twin Towers collapse.

"Now the 15 storys collapsing prior to the stories below collapsing, I'm not sure on that. I can guess that it was just due to heat traveling up, and when the initial floor failed, the weakness of the upper floors caused them to fail before taking out the structure below?"

See above. "heat travelling up"?? what sort of science is this? Firemen at the impact sites on the 78th floor reported fires that could have been extinguished with hoses. The official version said that the fire weakened the steel columns at the impact levels, which caused the upper floors to collapse onto the floors that were impacted, setting up a progressive collapse. Not even the cock-eyed official version mentioned "heat travelling upward"...

"Now, lets think of these "charges". So somehow, over the course of what.. years? terrorists (domestic or foreign) placed thousands and thousands of explosive charges inside every 3 floors of each building?"

That's what we have to come to terms with. What the implications are. There's plenty of information to suggest that this indeed happened. It's why I personally took so long to be convinced that it was a demolition job...the implications are absolutely mind boggling.

"I have had 3 different courses where 3 different teachers (one Chinese, one German and one Armenian) explained in detail how the collapse took place. And two of the 3 actually said that they had heard the conspiracy theory's and they were crap."

Of course they must be right. Doh.

"the reason scientist and engineers have not been moved by this video, is because they watched it and knew it wasn't true"

Apart from the architects and engineers who accepted its truth and have joined the 911 truth movement (aetruth.org in particular) along with pilots, former officials of the Bush administration, scientists and specialists of all stripes. And any person that can smell a rat when it's festering in front of their nostrils.

It is extremely telling that in common with the 911 Commission, gswanson has carefully (carelessly? recklessly?) omitted to mention WTC 7, which collapsed without any aircraft banging into it. He should view photos of the smaller buildings WTC 3, 4, 5 and 6 and notice that they were still standing - heavily damaged, but still standing - after the collapse of the Twin Towers, event though they were smaller and closer to the WTC 1 & 2. WTC 7 was standing further from the towers than the other four buildings. It was hit by some flying debris and had some spot fires, but in no way could these factors have caused it to collapse into its own foot print. Steel frame towers simply don't do this. This was clearly a demolition job. By reason of the collapse of WTC 7 alone, its timing and its method of collapse, we have to be immensely suspicious, even without looking at any of the evidence for the Twin Towers.

I suspect gswanson is purely and simply a shill, trying to sound like a regular professional guy.

Sincere and Well Grounded

For the most part I find the presentation compelling. I don't believe there is any intentional effort to misrepresent facts on the part of Richard Gage. He may well have verified the points I have questions about. Nonetheless, I have to urge a bit of caution in accepting all of his assertions uncritically. He appears to have accepted some statements which I also encountered, but for which I found no independent corroboration. One point that jumps out at me is the issue of galvanic corrosion. I recall reading about that, perhaps on http://www.rense.com. I did follow up on it, and found what appeared to be a legal deposition of a person attesting to having knowledge of galvanic corrosion problems in the WTC. Nonetheless, I would like a more tangible verification of this assertion before I embrace it as a known fact.

I am not trying to say Gage's presentation is fundamentally flawed. I the worst, it may have a few factual error which do not logically compromise his thesis. The problem is the professional liars such as Jim Meigs will latch onto any errors like a rabid pit bull.

I also don't intend to defame rense.com. Jeff will run a story if it has a ring of plausibility and invariably will include the caveat that he does not necessarily endorse the content. IOW, rense.com is a good place to get a jump start on information, but we should always follow up on what we find there.

Remember the Maine!

Need a DVD

I tried the recommendations for making a dvd above
But I'm not having any luck
I went ahead and got the RealPlayer software

realplayer burner keeps telling me the file is to big to fit on a dvd
:-(

Does anyone have a dvd they could mail me
I will buy it ....thank you

Remember.

Any video that presents facts like this one does, needs to be investigated before you can conclude that it is 100% legit. Know that it is alot easier to believe something upfront without doing any reasearch of your own, and these guys know this. I do believe in what he is saying though. I dont understand why so many people either dont believe in the conspiracy, or try to disprove it. You cant go wrong in believing it, because if in fact it isnt true, you dont have to worry. Though if you do not believe in it, and it is true, you will be caught off guard. Just keep an eye open, and open your heart to many possibilities.

How to build up your architect reputation?

The answer is simple, to design some buildings which can pick up your reputation greatly. How to make the buildings famous? The famous must be greatly functional, unique, special with new style. The building should hook up the people who visits.
So how could a building like this come out? Actually, one building is a work which need to put the architect, contractor, builder and supplier together. The building will go nowhere if one of which have problem.
But architect is the Key. He can pick up which kind of material the building can use.
For a certain project, the architect need to answer a question, how to design the building to be the best with a cost limitation.
Provided that the abilities of architects are same(one architect is not much better or worse than others). the materials for the building might be the biggest working area for the architect to work on.
An architect need to pick up the doors, windows, the ceilings, the lightings, the floor tile, the wall covering, the solid surfaces, the custom furnitures, the exterior wall on the building. What the people can see is what can improve the architect reputation.
So the problem turns to one issue how to find a good material with low cost.
Take an example, architects was supposed to pick up a wood mantel for a fireplace at cost of $1500. Do some research and find a company who can make marble mantel in the same price. You can find many of these company. For example, a company named Evan’s Home Luxuries, http://www.evanshomeluxuries.com in Boston, New england area. There, some mantel is about the same price.
Another example, for a entrance wood door, some times the price runs to $8000. If you use a cooper door, brass door, bronze door with the same price, definitely it will make the building a better reputation.
Use the granite tile to substitute the ceramic tile. A lot of suppliers can do that.
Use the wrought iron fence to substitute aluminum fences. Many.
You can find it.
It is the architect home work to do the research about all the material which will be used on the building. Do not point on the contracts do your homework if you want to be famous and make your money.
Architects are busy. I know some of Architect Company begins to hire buyer to do the investigation work about the architect material. This will be a fashion.

dvd's

It is good that the file can be downloaded, however it would be much more helpful if DVD's could be purchased from somewhere. I have downloaded the file and it works fine using VLC. However this will not work for distributing to family and friends and I believe this is the best presentation for showing people that haven't looked into the subject. I have tried burning the file to DVD, however it has not worked. With the various formats that I utilized, it either burned in it's entirety without any sound or it burned with sound but with large portions of video cut out (~30 minutes). I tried various other techniques but nothing seemed to work. I'm not sure if the file itself has problems or if it just didn't download properly. Either way it would be very helpful if a DVD, or even just a better quality video file (not flash video, preferably mpeg4 or some other easy to use format) were made available. I believe this is very important. Thank you

HUGE PROBLEM

This guy's an architect.

Meaning...he is NOT an engineer.

Richard Gage

He's right your Government used 9/11 to go into Iraq.
But when are you Americans going to wake and learn that 9/11 happened, not because some secret conspiracy by your own government to screw the american people.
but because of the years prior to 911 ..what your country's foreign policy has done to screw the Arab countries and support the Israel oppression of Palestine, fueling previous years of terrorists attacks on your country.
Terrorism is a politcal act with political goals.
Wake up and change your foreign policy, focus on what you are doing wrong in the world instead of looking for some spooks under your own bed.
Stop accusing your governemnt and take responsibilty, your ignorance of the world.
On that Day instead of looking to Afghanistan for revenge what would have happened if every american said "Why did this happen? What are we doing wrong, to make these people so angry? what do we have to change?"

http://www.debunking911.com/conspiracy.htm

boom boom, i agree with you

boom boom,

i agree with you on the foreign policy, but the pretext of gage's presentation is to create awareness so that a false flag event does not happen again. he states this in the first five minutes or so.

The new authority on the

The new authority on the collapse of the 3 steel framed marvels on 9/11 is Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Watch Richard Gage's presentation at SSU on 4-20-07 to learn how all the evidence points to a controlled demolition beyond any shadow of a doubt: http://AE911Truth.org. I must also use this time to recommend 2 other books I love: Terror Timeline and Confessions of an Economic Hitman. They are both important to understanding the bigger picture and putting 9/11 into context/perspective. Lemmings/sheep will ALWAYS have knee jerk reactions and cognitive dissonance until they do their homework or others do it for them.

It's getting nearer to the time when the truth, as in this video, will be verboten. I don't know if it will happen all at once, as with martial law, or little by little as has been the case. But one way or another the truth will die. We are living in the vestiges of the end of freedom or the beginning of what really will become freedom. If it is the former, I hope God will have pity and make our extinction as painless as possible.
