active thermitic material

German summary based on Jim Hoffmans layman summary on "Active Thermitic Material..."

That's the link to a free translation based on Jim Hoffmans article "Explosives Found in World Trade Center Dust:
Scientists Discover Both Residues And Unignited Fragments Of Nano-Engineered Thermitic Pyrotechnics In Debris From the Twin Towers" for the german speaking part.

Thermitic Pyrotechnics in the WTC by Jim Hoffman

The scientific paper Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe provides, quite simply, proof that explosives were used in the destruction of the Twin Towers. Specifically, the paper positively identifies an advanced engineered pyrotechnic material in each of several samples of dust from the destroyed skyscrapers, in the form of tiny chips having red and gray sides and sharing a very specific three-dimensional structure, chemical composition, and ignition behavior.

The basis and validity of this identification can grasped quickly by anyone with a working knowledge of physics and chemistry. They need only read the paper's one-page conlusion, and perhaps its section describing the provenance of the dust samples.

But what of the reader whose strong suit isn't the hard sciences? Does one have to be an expert to understand the findings and evaluate the many claims thrown up by "debunkers" to dismiss those findings?

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?
