Skip to comments.New heory Explains How Twin Towers Collapsed: Was Mixture Of Sprinkler Systems And Molten Aluminum

Simensen claims that it is overwhelmingly likely that the two aircraft were trapped inside an insulating layer of building debris within the skyscrapers. This leads him to believe that it was the aircraft hulls rather than the buildings themselves that absorbed most of the heat from the burning aircraft fuel.
The SINTEF scientist believes that the heat melted the aluminium of the aircraft hulls, and the core of his theory is that molten aluminium then found its way downwards within the buildings through staircases and gaps in the floor and that the flowing aluminium underwent a chemical reaction with water from the sprinklers in the floors below.
Both scientific experiments and 250 reported disasters suffered by the aluminium industry have shown that the combination of molten aluminium and water releases enormous explosions, said Simensen.

Does it really matter at this point? Only the wackos believe “we” did it, and we know the buildings fell.
The math is simple:
Skyscraper + flying plane full of fuel = bad.
Don’t need a new theory!
Aluminum isn’t used in rocket fuel for no reason.
Yes powdered aluminum is used in solid propellant rockets it is finely divided & thoroughly mixed with a solid oxidizer & the two components are ignited if the mixture is wrong you get a fizzle .
Yes the ship caught fire & burned into a hulk due to the Brits not being up to speed on damage control / fire fighting.
I just found it interesting as this seems to really be a good article to shut up all the conspiracy types
That may be true, but once the the insulation burned off the steel structures of the World Trade centers the steel melted and the buildings collapsed.
lol! I don’t know how you shut up all the conspiracy types. They seem to find their way around all logic.
This is not a new concept:

This is incredibly stupid!
1. Any evidence of molten aluminum that “flowed” through the buildings? No
2. Chemical change between aluminum and water??? Nothing dramatic - aluminum oxide maybe - harmless
3. Molten metal + water = rapid steam generation. When confined or when inside molten metal, the steam causes “explosions” - No mystery - happens with molten lead, zinc, steel etc.
Theories this lame can only come from dillusional non-scientists.
Ping for later
Only the real wackos want to silence questions.
The math is simple: Shill + brain full of techniques = bad.
Now let some pointy headed intellectuals dissect that THEORY!!
From the article:
Additionally, Simensen added that The aluminium industry has reported more than 250 aluminium-water explosions since 1980. Alcoa Aluminium carried out an experiment under controlled conditions, in which 20 kilos of aluminium smelt were allowed to react with 20 kilos of water, to which some rust was added. The explosion destroyed the entire laboratory and left a crater 30 metres in diameter.
So, I guess who is delusional depends on whether Alcoa really carried out such an experiment with the result described.
You can’t shut them up. I’ve found that, at this point, any reasonable person who might have entertained these beliefs has gone out, done a little research, and figured out they were wrong, or been convinced that they were wrong by somebody they mouthed off about it to. Anyone that still believes it is a conspiracy will never be reasoned out of that belief because they are emotionally attached to it.
Agreed! You only need to look even conceptually at the mass and heat capacity of the aircraft hull embedded in each building vs the mass and heat capacity of the buildings themselves and the venting paths available, and you know that this is indeed a crackpot theory promoted by a crackpot non-scientist trying to generate some personal publicity.
