A team of researchers from Purdue has created a scientifically based video animation of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. The animation shows that the façade of the World Trade Center north tower provided little resistance to the aircraft used in the attack. The visualization of the attacks will help civil engineers develop buildings that are more resistant to terrorists, the researchers say. (Purdue University image/Voicu Popescu)

Although most Americans believe they know what brought down the World Trade Center twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001, civil engineers are still seeking answers to questions that could save lives in the future.
