Purdue animates 9/11

http://blog.wired.com/wiredscience/2007/06/purdue_research.html

Researchers at Purdue university have developed an allegedly scientifically-accurate animation of the north tower strike from 9/11/01.  The animation takes into account the airplane metal, the fuel oil, and the pulverization of concrete and wall into dust and glass fragments.

It’s interesting, clean, and not for the faint of heart.

  1. Fascinating and chilling. Of course, the comments are filled with lunatics claiming a bomb must have been involved because their dog, the voices in their head, or some other lunatic told them that planes could not possibly have brought down buildings. I’m quite open to the idea that the administration had some degree of prior knowledge about the attacks, but declarations about physics by the insane or the willfully ignorant annoy me.
