World Trade Center Disaster Investigation Materials: http://wtcdata.nist.gov/index2.htm


NIST Director established a World Trade Center study secretariat early in 2002—six months prior to formal announcement of the investigation—to ensure that relevant offices throughout NIST—public affairs, legal, contracts, congressional, budget, safety, program office—would all work to effectively support the investigation.

On August 21, 2002, with funding from the U.S. Congress through FEMA, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced its building and fire safety investigation of the WTC disaster. On October 1, 2002, the National Construction Safety Team Act (Public Law 107-231), was signed into law. (A copy of the Public Law is included in Appendix A). The NIST WTC Investigation was conducted under the authority of the National Construction Safety Team Act. 1A.pdf NCSTAR_1A_p29


The first specific objective of the NIST building and fire safety investigation was to "Determine why and how WTC 1 and WTC 2 collapsed following the initial impacts of the aircraft and why and how WTC 7 collapsed". 1A.pdf NCSTAR_1A_p29

Message from a NIST Whistleblower

Sydney Conference: 9/11 - Physics and Findings: Challenging the NIST Report

The conventional explanation as given by Shyam Sunder , the NIST Lead Investigator, is:

“Like most building collapses, these events were the result of a combination of factors. While the buildings were able to withstand the initial impact of the aircraft, the resulting fires that spread through the towers weakened support columns and floors that had fireproofing dislodged by the impacts. This eventually led to collapse as the perimeter columns were pulled inward by the sagging floors and buckled.”

-Shyam Sunder, lead investigator for the agency’s building and fire safety investigation into the WTC disaster. (sciencedaily.com)

9/11, NIST, and “Bush Science”: A New Standard For Absurdity


1-9 Vol.1 pg 88 [PDF pg 132]

"The overall amount of visual material from September 11 was immense. Well in excess of 7,000 photographs, representing more than 200 photographers, and over 300 hours of video, from professional organizations and over 40 individuals, on nearly 150 separate tapes were assembled and logged."


pg 261 [PDF pg 365]

"The visual database contains 16 videos showing at least a portion of the collapse of WTC 7. Nine of these were selected for more detailed analysis; each of these nine cameras was primarily located to the north of the WTC complex."


Apx H 6-22-04 pg 8 [PDF pg 14]

At the present time, 3,032 of the 6,759 catalogued photographs and 2,673 of the 6,911 video clips in the databases are timed with assigned relative accuracies of 3 seconds or better.
