A Physicist Explains: Pancaking Theory


Instead of pancaking, the World Trade Center towers disintegrated into dust particles. This process began already when it was still standing. There are no storeys visible as you would see in a pancake collapse and the height of the debris and rubble pile was low. It’s hard to see any evidence of 110-storeys.

The buildings below show the pancake collapses seen in earthquakes.

Puffs of debris and smoke can be seen that look like the ejections made by explosions of squibs. Debunkers say that these are puffs from the air pressure pushing the puffs out. However, heavy beams were also expelled and were impaled into buildings 100 meters away. Therefore, the bicycle pump explanation for the ejection of material from the buildings that landed some distance away fails.

Pictures of the collapse show the towers breaking up into small pieces, including heavy structural beams, and concrete masonry turning into dust in mid-air.

A more powerful force had to be present to cause heavy beam structures to break up into pieces like match sticks and be expelled a 100 meters away.

Problems with pancaking/gravity theory

Examples of pancaking

Distinct floors can be seen in the pictures of pancake collapses. The appearances are very different to what was seen in the WTC collapses.

Squibs, missiles and “puffs of air”

Debunkers say these are puffs of air (containing dirt and dust) that were ejected while the floors were pancake-collapsing. That is, they claim the collapsing floors ‘squeezed out’ these ‘puffs’.


Mid-air pulverization

The tower is being pulverized even before it hits the ground.

How do the conspiracy-‘debunkers’ explain these structures being ‘squeezed out’? This isn’t just dirt and debris but heavy beams of metal. They landed more than a hundred feet away.

It is unlikely force of air pressure from the collapsing storeys expelled the heavy beams, weighing more than a hundred pounds, this far distance and into a building. Only a powerful force, such as is produced in an explosion, threw this structure and impaled it into the building.

World Trade Center Twin Tower breaks up before hits the ground

This picture shows the facade of the World Trade Center breaking up into pieces already before it has hit the ground. The picture clearly shows the process of disintegration happening while the floors are falling down.



The picture below shows the steel facade of the WTC tower that acted as a strong steel mosquito net. The beams weigh hundreds of pounds. They are shown above in the photo, breaking up into pieces. This is due to the tremendous blast force of the nuclear explosion.

This photo above shows the beams including I-beams that were used in the construction of the WTC towers. The picture shows the true scale and size of the structures that are falling and breaking up in mid-air. From afar they resemble match sticks but in reality they were heavy beams that weighed more hundreds of pounds. Image:  911research.wtc7.net





Reason why gravity theory is wrong

A bicycle pump analogy cannot explain matter shooting upwards in the air. Only an explosion can have enough energy to cause this.  arsenalofhypocrisy.com

Reason why fire and structural damage theory is wrong

4. 90 West Street

DAVE PERAZA: Aircraft parts were found on the roof of this 24-story building, which sustained structural damage on its north face and burned for days after the attack. Nevertheless, the steel-framed structure, a landmarked building designed by Cass Gilbert with heavy terra cotta floors, survived remarkably well.

5. 130 Liberty Street/Bankers Trust

DAVE PERAZA: Facade columns from South Tower raked down the north face of this building, gouging a hole from the 22nd floor down to the 8th floor. Remarkably, the columns above the destroyed area did not collapse.
