Special note for all researchers whose work is featured on this site: Please contact me at


This website contains:

  • The only visual reconstruction of the collapses of WTC1 and 2, identifying the collapse progression mechanisms of each tower.

  • The only accurate, detailed mapping of the earliest movements of each building available. The detailed reconstruction of the moments leading up to and of collapse initiation of each building is used to fact-check claims made by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) within their official reports on the collapses and claims made by other organizations and individuals.

  • Detailed criticism of the official reports on WTC1, 2 and WTC7 by the NIST, showing that claims made within the reports on all 3 buildings directly contradict what can be verified through the visual record.

  • Links to libraries of the largest and most complete collections of video and photographic evidence of the attacks, collapses and resulting debris available to the public.

  • The most accurate review of academic papers on the collapses available.

  • Detailed critique of how professional/academic publications have misrepresented the collapse modes of the Twin Towers from 2001 to 2021

  • An identification of the 3 original sources of all professional/academic misrepresentations of the Twin Tower collapse modes

  • Detailed critique of how journalism has misrepresented the collapse modes of the Twin Towers from 2001 to 2021

  • Detailed critique of how Wikipedia has misrepresented the collapse modes of the Twin Towers from 2004 to 2021

  • Open letters of protest to various news organizations about their misrepresentations of the Twin Towers collapse modes from 2001 to 2021

Why preserve an independent, detailed visual record of the events at the World Trade Center complex on 9-11-01?

Without an accurate and detailed visual record of what really happened, there is no way to independently verify the truth of any claim made by official or non-official sources.

Re-examination of the complete visual record is the only way to distinguish between false claims and the true events. Without such re-examination, any false claims can be made by any party for any reason, and the average person, now or in the future, would have no way of knowing or verifying what actually happened with their own eyes.

For this reason the visual record is re-constructed and re-examined as completely as possible. It is preserved so that historians and future generations which are affected by the events of 9/11/01 can fact-check what they have been told independently, free from the bias of governments or groups with their own personal motivations and interpretations.

The website is written in a way that discourages blind belief in any authoritative source, no matter how paternal, while encouraging sincere fact-checking by re-examination of direct visual evidence.

All observed features are presented in a way that the reader has ample opportunity to verify all information for themselves.

All observations and measurements should be reproducible and testable by any capable person or organization. Links are provided to all source video from which measurements were taken, so any capable reader can directly cross-check results.

The Official Descriptions and Explanations of Each Collapse Are Verifiably Untrue

Preservation and re-construction of the complete visual record is all the more essential because by doing so anyone can verify that the explanations of each collapse are verifiably untrue.

The final reports on each collapse provided by U.S. Government agencies, particularly by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), contain verifiably gross errors. These errors can be confirmed by comparing claims made within each report with the extant visual record. Moreover, no government agency or academic body acknowledges or even seems to recognize that these gross errors exist from 2005 to the present.

Such gross errors are easily spotted once the visual record of events are re-assembled and re-viewed. It is not just that such gross errors exist that is surprising, but that they have gone unnoticed in the 16 years since the reports were written.

The Twin Towers collapse modes have been misrepresented by all U.S Government sources, in all professional/academic publications, in all news media from 2001 to 2021.

This website analyzes each of these sources in detail and provides overwhelming evidence that this is true.

The author of this website compiles independent research by independent researchers

This website brings together the work of a number of independent researchers who actively share their own discoveries and observations.

There is no common underlying philosophy or group organization among these researchers.

No researcher has given the author permission speak on their behalf. Views expressed in this website are those of the author only and don't necessarily reflect opinions held any researcher whose work is presented.

When posting the work of another researcher, care is taken to present information according to the wishes of that researcher, in which case the author only acts as an editor and reviewer.

Credit for research

Many of the observations and features presented are not original discoveries by the author of this website.

Object tracking and sub-pixel measuring techniques are applied by 3 researchers independently of each other. Credits for various graphic images and measurements presented are often expressed by providing links back to the original forum posts from which the ideas evolved.

Most all gif animations and video were created by others.

Who is the Author of this website?

I am a private citizen not affiliated with any group who was quite surprised to learn that the technical history of the WTC collapses as written is fundamentally false. Direct measurements extracted from the visual record of the collapses grossly contradict history as it is generally presented.

In the course of research I was able to collect a record of movement of all 3 collapsed buildings that was verifiably superior to and grossly contradicted the record provided by U.S. Government agencies. I was able to correspond with other independent researchers who provided measurements and documented observables on a level far more intricate than that which previously existed. This website and corresponding book are a compilation of that collected data.
