Dr. Steven E. Jones

Steven Jones and Frank Greening (and others) correspond - April-May, 2009.

(From Steven Jones...)

For years, Frank Greening has argued with our research group, which is not in itself unwelcomed because we welcome review of our research. Here I will refer to recent arguments by FG and our responses, to let the reader decide for himself whose “side” has the greater scientific veracity. There are two main categories in this discussion: 1) Newton’s Third Law as applied to WTC Towers and 2) Discussion of the red/gray chips paper.

1) Newton’s Third Law as applied to WTC Tower

On April 19, 2009 F. Greening wrote to me and I replied:

FG: "I would say that Chandler's slight of hand is the implied notion that Newton's 3rd Law is universally applicable, even to a collapsing building. The fact is that when a building is collapsing by multiple floor failures the reaction force obviously fails to balance the downward force because the yield strength of the failing columns is being exceeded."

SJ: No.  This is a blatant and fundamental error.   I have caught many a student on the equivalent of this nonsense, as I taught Newtonian Mechanics for over 21 years.  Newton's 3rd law is always applicable, even in the case you mention, Frank. The key is that the "equal and opposite forces" must act on DIFFERENT bodies.   Suggest you consult a basic physics or mechanics text if you don't understand that. – Steven Jones

Later the same day, FG persists in his misunderstanding of Newton’s Laws and says:

We launched a new website here for the german speaking part of the world with a short overview on the latest study and a easy link to keep in mind. (even if the name is not 100% scientifically correct)

Editor in chief of Open Chemical Physics Journal resigns after controversial article on 9/11

(SnowCrash has updated this blog entry with some very interesting background information on Ms. Pileni... kicking it up to the front page for review. -rep.) (Another good update on this blog today, below the red "Update" text - kicking back up to the top. Originally posted 2009-04-29 - rep.)

The editor in chief of the journal where recently the paper: "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe" was published, resigned, claiming she wasn't informed of the publication. She proceeds to provide not a single solid scientific rebuttal, only administrative bickering and personal political bias against, well.. inconvenient science. One particularly notable comment attributed to Ms. Pileni is this one: "Marie-Paule Pileni points out that because the topic lies outside her field of expertise, she cannot judge whether the article in itself is good or bad.".

Strangely, her areas of research seem to contradict that. I'll quote you an excerpt of her resume:

Letter to the Editor: We are avoiding physics of WTC

http://www.sunnewspapers.net/articles/edStory.aspx?articleID=435991

04/22/09 - We are avoiding physics of WTC

Editor:

Recently, explosive scientific evidence proving that high-tech nano-thermitic material was present in the World Trade Center dust was reported in a scientific journal titled, "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe."

Authored by an international team of physicists and chemists, the article in the Open Chemical Physics Journal 2009, Vol. 2, said, "We conclude that the red layer of the red/gray chips we have discovered in the WTC dust is active, unreacted thermitic material, incorporating nanotechnology, and is a highly energetic pyrotechnic or explosive material."

The comments as always divided between "Non Believers" posting nonsense and denial and rational, educated Truthers.

Besides that, the silence is deafening. The story does't got legs so far, and that means that the mainstream media is full of fear about this. How can we break loose the story?

Small Chips in World Trade Center dust identified as unexploded Thermite

Small Chips in World Trade Center dust identified as unexploded Thermite

By Peter Duveen

PETER'S NEW YORK, April 4, 2009--A group of researchers says it has positively identified residues of undetonated explosives in dust samples collected soon after the collapses of three World Trade Center buildings on September 11, 2001. The positive outcome of tests carried out in painstaking detail appears to contradict the assertions by U.S. government experts that explosives were not used to take the buildings down.

Visibility 9-11 Welcomes Kevin Ryan and Dr. Steven E. Jones

These two important episodes of Visibility 9-11 welcomes back to the program, Kevin Ryan and Physicist Dr. Steven E. Jones.

Kevin is a chemist who is formerly of Underwriter Laboratories. Kevin became a 9-11 whistleblower when he was fired for writing his now infamous 2004 letter to Frank Gayle at the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST). Kevin has been very prolific in his research since getting fired by UL and has either authored or co-authored many important papers relating to 9-11 since 2004.

Dr. Jones is a retired physics professor and first emerged in late 2005 with his important paper, Why Indeed Did the World Trade Center Buildings Completely Collapse?, and has continued to do groundbreaking research into the "collapses" of all three high rise buildings on September 11th, 2001.

Kevin and Dr. Jones both sit as co-editors at the Journal of 9-11 Studies and Dr. Jones is the founder of Scholars for 9-11 Truth and Justice. Both have been stalwarts in the scientific and scholarly area of the 9-11 Truth Movement..

George Flynn of Words of Freedom Welcomes Michael Wolsey of Visibility 9-11

MIchael talks to a local Colorado listening audience about the upcoming paper from Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice which details a "thermite fingerprint" in the 9/11 dust. Thanks to George Flynn and the great folks at KRFC in Fort Collins for getting this important information to a mainstream audience! Visibility 9-11 is committed to raising awareness around this exciting new scientific paper and will be featuring special broadcasts with Dr. Jones and Kevin Ryan in the near future.

Nanotechnology: 9/11 and the Future

With the advent of the discoveries surrounding the 9/11/01 nano-thermite evidence, along with what is about to come down the pike, I decided to do a cursory layman study of “nanotechnology”.

One nanometer (nm) is one billionth, or 10-9, of a meter. It takes about 3-10 atoms to span the length of a nanometer. 1 nanometer = 1,000 microns (µm) (micrometers). A red blood cell is 7 microns in diameter. A bacterium might be 200 nanometers in length.

This 10 minute video gives an excellent overview of nanotechnology.

Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth coming to Denver

February 9, 1:55 PM
by James Curran, Denver Nonpartisan Examiner

February 13th, 2009, 7:00pm at the Tattered Cover Book Store in Lower Downtown Denver (LoDo) Richard Gage, AIA founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth will be discussing the destruction of the World Trade Center through a multimedia presentation that promises to be suitable for professionals and laymen alike. That’s right, Friday the 13th Denver’s skeptical are encouraged to join Richard Gage for some solid, documented evidence and disciplined thinking.

Gage will be examining the aircraft impacts, the fires, the official investigations by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the evidence for the explosive demolition hypothesis. “…an extensive and myth-shattering analysis of the destruction of the WTC Towers and Building 7.”—Steven E. Jones, Physicist

Author Griffin calls for formation of truth and reconciliation commission to heal wounds of 9-11

By Peter Duveen

PETER'S NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2008--One of the major critics of the U.S. government's version of the events of September 11, 2001 is calling for the formation of a “truth and reconciliation commission” to get to the bottom of the happenings of that day.

David Ray Griffin, author of seven books on 9-11, including his latest, "A New Pearl Harbor Revisited," all of which are critical of the government's 9-11 investigations, said on the Alex Jones radio program today that he believed the administration of incoming U.S. President Barack Obama will be more open to the establishment of such a commission. "With a new administration...there is really a chance" that there could be a new 9-11 investigation, Griffin said. Griffin described Obama as "very bright," with a strong moral compass and an appreciation of the U.S. constitution. "He and his people will be open to evidence" that contradicts government accounts, Griffin said. He also said that Obama was likely to embrace the idea of forgiveness that would be essential for a truth and reconciliation commission. "He's willing to let bygones be bygones," said Griffin.
