Dr Steven E. Jones is an American physicist who worked on muon-catalyzed fusion. In 2006, amid controversy surrounding his work on the collapse of the World Trade Center he was relieved of his teaching duties and placed on paid leave from Brigham Young University, retiring October 20, 2006 with the status of Professor Emeritus (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_E._Jones ).
Dr Steven E. Jones on explosive demolition of the WTC: “On the basis of photographic and video evidence as well as related data and analyses, I provide thirteen reasons for ejecting the official hypothesis, according to which fore an impact damage caused the collapsed of the Twin Towers and of WTC7, in favor of the controlled demolition hypothesis…I believe this is a straightforward hypothesis, much more probable actually than the official hypothesis. It deserves thorough scientific scrutiny, beyond that which I have been able to outline in this treatise. Conclusion. I have drawn attention to glaring inadequacies in the “final” reports funded by the US Government. I have also presented multiple evidences for an alternative hypothesis. In particular, the official theory lacks repeatability in that no actual model or buildings (before or since 9-11-01) have been observed to completely collapse due to the proposed fire-based mechanisms. On the other hand, hundreds of buildings have been completely and symmetrically demolished through the use of pre-positioned explosives. And high-temperature chemical reactions can account for the observed large pools of molten metal , under both the Towers and WTC7, and the sulfidation of structural steel. The controlled demolition hypothesis cannot be dismissed as “junk science” because it better satisfies tests of repeatability and parsimony.” .
