Scientific study of anomalous aspects of the 9/11 World Trade Center towers collapses, based on data and photographic sources. Best-selling book of interest to conspiracy theorists but is not itself a conspiracy theory work, in the sense that it is about scientific anomalies and possible explanations "what happened" rather than "whodunnit".
From the main book website (http://wheredidthetowersgo.com/about/) --
Over a half mile of vertical building height, containing nearly 150 football fields of floor space, was reduced to a near-level field of dust and debris, where rescue workers walked horizontally or rappelled into empty caverns to look for survivors. How was this possible given the standard laws of engineering and physics?
The 9/11 Commission Report bypassed this central issue, as did the report of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Contrary to its stated objective of determining "why and how WTC 1 and WTC 2 collapsed," the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) made the stunning admission that it did not investigate how the towers fell.
Neither the standard view-that the Twin Towers collapsed from fire-nor the standard opposition view-that they were intentionally detonated by "thermite explosives"- explains the evidence, nor do they follow the laws of engineering and physics.
Dr. Wood left Clemson to research the 9/11 conundrum full time, and she has focused her research strictly on physical evidence and scientific principles. "Where Did the Towers Go?" provides an understandable, credible, and photo-enhanced summary of Dr. Wood's disturbing findings, which resulted in her lawsuit against the contractors of the NIST report.
