Authors David Chandler and Ted Walter kicked off the Center’s “Takeaways” series on July 1, 2023. The conversation was moderated by longtime Colorado-based 9/11 activist Fran Shure.
The topic of discussion was a paper recently published in the Journal of 9/11 Studies, “The Instantaneous Free Fall of World Trade Center Building 7 and NIST’s Attempt to Hide It,” which David and Ted co-authored with engineer Tony Szamboti.
If you’re interested in learning how Building 7’s transition to free fall was instantaneous and simultaneous across the entire measurable roofline of the building, then be sure not to miss this talk.
Takeaways is a conversation series about research published by the International Center for 9/11 Justice.
The main purpose of Takeaways is to distill the research findings published by the Center so that activists can share those findings with the public. The series is also meant to foster scholarly dialogue.
Discussion sessions will usually be held after articles are published in the Journal of 9/11 Studies, assuming authors agree to participate.
They may also be held after letters are published in the Journal of 9/11 Studies or after a thread of papers is published in the Debated Topics Forum and the original author and at least one responding author agree to participate.
