NIST says that flowing aluminum with partially burned organic
materials mixed in, "can display an orange glow." But will it really do
this? I decided to do an experiment to find out.
We melted aluminum in a steel pan using an oxy-acetylene torch.
Then we added plastic shavings -- which immediately burned with a
dark smoke, as the plastic floated on top of the hot molten aluminum.
Next, we added wood chips (pine, oak and compressed fiber board chips)
to the liquid aluminum. Again, we had fire and smoke, and again, the
hydrocarbons floated on top as they burned. We poured out the aluminum
and all three of us observed that it appeared silvery, not orange! We
took photos and videos, so we will have the recorded evidence as these
are processed. (I have now attached two videos showing clearly the
silvery appearance of the flowing aluminum.) Of course, we saw a few
burning embers, but this did not alter the silvery appearance of the
flowing, falling aluminum.
We decided to repeat the experiment, with the same aluminum
re-melted. This time when we added fresh wood chips to the hot molten
aluminum, we poured the aluminum-wood concoction out while the fire was
still burning. And as before, the wood floated on top of the liquid
aluminum. While we could see embers of burning wood, we observed the
bulk of the flowing aluminum to be silvery as always, as it falls
through the air.
This is a key to understanding why the aluminum does not "glow
orange" due to partially-burned organics "mixed" in (per NIST theory) -
because they do NOT mix in! My colleague noted that it is like oil and
water - organics and molten aluminum do not mix. The hydrocarbons float
to the top, and there burn - and embers glow, yes, but just in spots.
The organics clearly do NOT impart to the hot liquid aluminum an
"orange glow" when it falls, when you actually do the experiment!
(Refer to attached videos of our experiments.)
In the videos of the molten metal falling from WTC2 just prior to
its collapse, it appears consistently orange, not just orange in spots
and certainly not silvery. We conclude that the falling metal which
poured out of WTC2 is NOT aluminum. Not even aluminum "mixed" with
organics as NIST theorizes.
What is it? I have a bold hypothesis which still stands all our
experimental tests to date, as described in my paper
Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Collapse?.
NIST should do experiments to test their "wild" theories about what
happened on 9/11/2001, if they want to learn the truth about it.
