This May 10, 2011 interview of Dr. Niels Harrit, Associate Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen, was conducted by Michael Rudin of the BBC.
Apologies if this has already been posted, but in this interview, Harrit deals brilliantly with the persistance of Michael Rudin who tries to lead Harrit into speculation and straw man arguments.
Worth watching right through, or jump to 2hr 5 min 25 sec and hear Niels speak of why this case needs investigating. Really inspiring. And also illuminating - the interviewer jumps through hoops of his own making to hold onto his convictions.

Dr. Niels Harrit, now on a lecture tour of Canadian universities, has been speaking to capacity crowds across the country, including university faculty members and other professional people.
In Victoria, BC, Dr. Harrit was interviewed by local cable TV, where his interview will be available eight times to a large regional population on an upcoming weekend.
The one-hour interview, of excellent educational quality, and also of personal interest, is available at http://www.vimeo.com/20574556
"There is no doubt that this building was taken down in a controlled demolition...there is no way around this conclusion."
Dr. Niels Harrit (retired associate professor of chemistry) and his team at the University of Copenhagen published a paper in The Open Chemical Physics Journal and verified that red/grey particles of non-reacted nanothermite was found in the dust of the WTC buildings. This finding is irrevocable proof -- the veritable DNA -- that "office fires" and jet planes did not bring down the three buildings on that fateful day.
9/11 has been the prima facie excuse for incursions of the U.S. and NATO into foreign nations, the sole justification for suspension of our domestic civil liberties and the common denominator of "The War on Terror".
This interview traces Dr. Harrit's personal and professional journey into and through the events of 9/11 and beyond.
As a Full Professor of Physics at BYU, I reviewed dozens of scientific papers as an "anonymous" peer-reviewer. I have reviewed papers since accepting early retirement from BYU in 2007. And I have published as author or co-author over fifty papers which have been subjected to peer-review. Based on my experience in the peer-review system, I can add that it is not the place of an author of a paper or even an editor to reveal the names of anonymous peer-reviewers, but it is precedented and generally acceptable in the scientific community for a peer-reviewer to disclose his/her OWN name and role in the review of an important paper. This is the case for a prominent reviewer of the Harrit, Farrer, et al. paper -- one of the reviewers discloses his name and further comments on our paper and his review of it here: http://impactglassman.blogspot.com/2010/09/911-truth-evidence-of-energet... . The reviewer's name is Prof. David L. Griscom. Among his impressive credentials, Prof.
Credibility is everything, and when the deniers of 911 truth can't accept the facts at face value specifically because they take comfort in the credentials of others who don't want to hear the facts, there is a need to expose conflict of interests.
In an ongoing discussion between myself and a good friend about credibility issues of the main players in the 911 research scene, my friend scoffs at Jones by sighting the resignation of Pileni as editor after Jones, Harrit et al. were able to publish the findings of the nano-thermite.
In the interview at this website...
.. she states that she is aware that the Jones submission may have a political viewpoint.
It should be noted that her own viewpoint is probably affected by the fact that she is a faculty member of Georgia Tech, essentially an academic arm of the defense industry which the website makes clear.

AS THE DUST SETTLES... Danish Scientist Finds Evidence of Nano-Thermite in WTC dust. “Brought down by mixture of explosives"
I interviewed Dr. Neils Harrit, PhD from Copenhagen Denmark, on the ninth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, about his research and findings. Below this press release, you will find my interview.
"The Last Nail In the 9/11 Coffin" - Danish Scientist Links Evidence of Explosive Thermite to Ground Zero WTC Destruction
Press Conference Announcement
Scientists Link Explosive Thermite to 9/11/01 WTC Destruction
This is only the initial draft release and not all inclusive. I fully expect additions and corrections which I will periodically revise as new and better information surfaces.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On the eve of the 9th anniversary of 9/11, support for the war in Afghanistan took a serious blow today. Simultaneous press conferences were held in New York and Los Angeles to present startling new information refuting the official 9/11 narrative used to justify the war. Also announced were three major professional groups which have joined the worldwide, and ever-growing, “9/11 Truth Movement”.
In a striking show of unity, representatives of “Scientists for 9/11 Truth”, “U.S. Military Officers for 9/11 Truth” and “Actors & Artists for 9/11 Truth” presented their findings and unveiled their eye-opening websites. Each non-profit group has launched a petition calling for a new, transparent investigation.
Metallurgical Examination of WTC Steel Suggests Explosives
Although virtually all of the structural steel from the Twin Towers and Building 7 was removed and destroyed, preventing forensic analysis, FEMA's volunteer investigators did manage to perform "limited metallurgical examination" of some of the steel before it was recycled. Their observations, including numerous micrographs, are recorded in Appendix C of the WTC Building Performance Study. Prior to the release of FEMA's report, a fire protection engineer and two science professors published a brief report in JOM disclosing some of this evidence. 1
The results of the examination are striking. They reveal a phenomenon never before observed in building fires: eutectic reactions, which caused "intergranular melting capable of turning a solid steel girder into Swiss cheese." The New York Times described this as "perhaps the deepest mystery uncovered in the investigation." 2 WPI provides a graphic summary of the phenomenon.
A highly anticipated debate between two members of Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth and two physicists is scheduled for August 21, 2010. The debate will air on the popular late night talk show Coast to Coast AM with host Ian Punnett between 10pm - 2am Pacific time.
Richard Gage, AIA, founder of Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth and an architect for over twenty years, will be joined by Danish scientist, Niels Harrit, Associate Professor at University of Copenhagen—a chemist and university teacher with expertise in organic chemistry, photochemistry, fluorescence, and nanotechnology.
Harrit co-authored a peer-reviewed paper along with Dr. Steven Jones and several others, documenting their discovery of a highly energetic, nano-engineered form of thermite in World Trade Center dust. In its ordinary form, thermite, a mixture of iron oxide and aluminum powder, burns extremely hot –around 4500° F. – more than hot enough to melt iron, which melts at around 2700° F. Gage and Harrit will present evidence that the three World Trade Center skyscrapers were explosively demolished on September 11, 2001.

60 minutes of highlights presented by Steven E. Jones, Ph.D. and Kevin R. Ryan in 2009.
Dr. Jones is a well published professor of physics, and Mr. Ryan was previously employed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
They describe some of the findings they have published in peer reviewed scientific papers.
They argue that scientific evidence refutes the official conclusion by the National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) that explosives were not involved in the collapse of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7 on September 11, 2001.

22nd of July, 2010
Australia's number one talk back Radio Station 2GB, have reported on the Prof. Niels Harritt Lecture on the 17th of July, 2010 at the Sydney Mechanic's School of Arts during their late night show with Brian Wilshire. Sydney's most popular late night show's regular guest, Prof. Keith Suter who attended the Harritt Lecture, has expressed his fascination with the issue of the World Trade Center 7 collapse on the afternoon of September 11, 2001.
On the Saturday the 17th of July, 2010 9/11 Truth Australia will host a public lecture by Danish Professor Niels Harrit from the University of Copenhagen, titled “Did Explosives Bring Down the Towers on 9/11?”
Professor Harrit is the lead author of an expert international team that produced a peer reviewed scientific paper published early last year, titled “Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe”. This paper, which has not been reported in this country to date, has remained unchallenged within the scientific literature and can be found online at the Open Chemical Physics Journal, Bentham Open (www.bentham.org).

Swiss MYSTERIES magazine covers nanothermite-research, did interviews with Niels Harrit and german "debunker" Gunnar Ries
The Swiss MYSTERIES magazine, print edition 3/2010, covers the story of nanothermite and a dispute between Harrit and german "debunker" Dr. Gunnar Ries. Ries made up a blog back in early 2010 and made a bunch of claims why the study wasn't that good at all- and Prof. Harrit responded to his claims. Ries did suggest to do his own testing on the chips, if he get some.
MYSTERIES also asked swiss engineers who once claimed that WTC 7 was controlled demolition again on their standing.
The magazine costs 7,50€ and is now available in germany and switzerland!
Unfortunetaly there is no online version of the article yet, but they promised to deliver at least the interviews on their homepage soon!
I will do a blog entry on my new blog at german 9/11-archiv.net next weekend!
Abstract: Concrete cracked in to chunks but did not turn to dust, when dropped 50 feet.
Purpose: To test the hypothesis that concrete pulverizes in to pyroclastic clouds of dust when it falls rapidly on to concrete, as it did at three World Trade Center buildings on 9/11
Methodology: Blocks of concrete were purchased. One block was dropped from a 5th floor balcony on to another block. The experiment was video recorded.
Result: It was found that the concrete cracked in to chunks, but did not create a significant amount of concrete dust.
Conclusion: Another explanation for the pulverized dust needs to be formally investigated, such as the presence of pre-planted explosives in the World Trade Centers.
It was also found that terrorists would not be able to purchase nano-thermite easily.

343 brave New York City Firefighters died on 9/11, this episode of Visibility 9/11 is dedicated to them!
If you have not heard the name Erik Lawyer it is one to remember. Erik is a full time Firefighter and is a new shinning light in the 9/11 Truth Movement. He has been impressing all he meets with his simple message demanding a thorough criminal forensic investigation of the 9/11 World Trade Center catastrophe. He and his fire-fighting comrades want the authorities to do their job and carry out an investigation in accordance with fire scene investigation protocols, that he and all US fire fighters adhere to religiously.
On 9/11 so many things happened for the first time and the one that is of greatest concern to Erik and his group, Firefighters for 9/11 Truth is the near complete destruction of evidence at this fire crime scene and the subsequent monumental cover up and obfuscation of the little remaining evidence. Independently gathered evidence clearly demonstrates that incendiaries and explosives were used to facilitate the three WTC buildings destruction. For more information, see the Visibility 9-11 Special Report, Thermite Fingerprint- The Loaded Gun of 9-11.
Interesting history of pressure on BYU in reaction to his challenging the 9/11 Story and the School's behind the scenes support for his work.
Good, concise description of the Nano-Thermite Paper.
Peter B. Collins is one of the top journalists in my view who challenges the 9/11 Story. It's his latest Podcast, but when more come along, the following link will not go directly to it. So in the Archives it will be Podcast #116.
Thanks to Peter for his very good journalistic work in general and especially on 9/11.
Very fast paced short documentary (17 mins) about nano science and technology. Steven Fry narrates this documentary originally made for the Internet.
Where and what is nano? How will it shape our future? Nanoscience is the study of phenomena and manipulation of materials at the nanoscale, where properties differ significantly from those at a larger scale. The strange world of nanoscience - it can take you into atoms and beyond the stars.

Jones, Kevin R. Ryan, Frank M. Legge, Daniel Farnsworth, James R. Gourley and Bradley R. Larsen.
UTD is a response to the narrow special interest serving perspective of mainstream news media coverage that leans toward sensationalism and celebrity rather than truth and substance. The program is hosted by Humboldt County residents Jason Robo and Kyle Beattie, both recent graduates of Humboldt State University's department of Political Science. Robo and Beattie seek to provide coverage and analysis through the lens of tyranny, liberty and an alarming tendency towards centralization of power.

Jim Hoffman has written this article,
This is brilliant insight into a critical problem explaining the destruction on 911.
How does nanothermite get everywhere in the two towers?
And, how do you detonate it with flawless split second accuracy?
The article outlines probable ways the demolitions may have happened.
What struck me was the sheer brilliance of using ceiling tiles laced with nanothermite
and RF transmitter detonators. The ceiling tiles were already placed throughout the buildings,
and with layers of nanothermite sandwiched between each one, their abundance can
reasonably account for the massive explosions and the pools of molten iron months after the demolition.
I understood about cutter charges and painting the thermite on core columns, but I could
not get the thoroughness of the explosions on all the floors. Laced ceiling tiles explains it.
As a plan, can you think of a better way to prepare the buildings for demolition without a hint of suspicion?
Attorney General Holder Notified of Scientific Evidence of 9/11 Treason: Commission concluded Al-Qaeda behind the WTC "bombings"
Although I have previously indicated that the Attorney General had received indication of the scientific proof of 9/11 treason, I thought it was time to produce a transcript of how the Attorney General slipped the question and tried to slip the evidence, including an account of the strange thumbs-up the Attorney General apparently gave me out the darkened window of his SUV as he left the scene. Here it is:
The S.H.A.W.L. House
San Pedro, California
July 16, 2009
Jeremy: Attorney General Holder, Jeremy Rothe-Kushel with WeAreChangeLA citizen’s media; It seems there’s like incredible work being done here at S.H.A.W.L. in terms of recovery and healing, in terms of violence against women. And it seems, in terms of the United States of America, one of the biggest things that’s not talked about in terms of violence against women is this ongoing alleged ‘War on Terror;’ that just this last week we have reports of drones killing numerous women and children on the other side of the planet, all based on a crime of incredible magnitude, September 11th, done against the American people. And I have evidence, scientific proof in my hands, that I would like for you to take into your possession, that shows that there’s a very advanced, unexploded, military-grade explosive residue found in the dust of the World Trade Center. And that would prove that someone else, other than Al-Qaeda, is likely involved in this. And so my question is: When are we as the people of the United States of America going to stop killing women and children on the other side of the planet in an alleged ‘War on Terror’ and when are you, as the chief law enforcement official in the land, going to open up a criminal investigation in terms of who put this in the towers and who ordered it?

Rep. Brad Sherman’s office admits explosives found in the World Trade Center dust –“…but not enough to bring down the towers."
This is a very good article by Edward Brotherton documenting his disciplined and effective effort to get his Congressman's office to acknowledge that the science indicating ongoing 9/11 treason exists, even if they continue, like Senator Lindsey Graham and his office, to stick with NIST and the 9/11 Commission.
This article has been sent far and wide to those in the political realm and media. If you can help spread it, please do so.

WeAreChangeLA facilitates scientific discourse on 9/11 nano-tech thermitic material w/ Gregg Roberts and Priya Vashishta
On October 14, 2009, at the same event at the University of Southern California where WeAreChangeLA had confronted former Secretary of the Air Force Thomas C. Reed on 9/11 war games and the threats of nuclear treason ( http://www.911blogger.com/node/21693 ), a conversation was struck up with Priya Vashista, a nano-energetics expert and USC professor. Vashista gave his version of a possible explanation for a spontaneous type of thermitic reaction involving the aluminum from the planes and rust from the buildings' steel. After being asked whether he was describing what he saw as the potential for the formation of nano-thermite specifically, Vashista said that he was. It was clear that he had not been familiar with the "Active Thermitic Material" itself or the specific nano-tech qualities that it displays. However, in addition to openly stating that "many questions have not been fully explained," Vashishta was quite open and thankful to receive the abstract from the "Active Thermitic Material" paper and said that he would be willing to comment on it after looking in to it.
