“9/11: Science & Society”
A Proud Addition to Our Online Store

This ground-breaking definitive DVD by Dr. Steven E. Jones is now available. See “Science & Society” in our online store

We are delighted to offer the most important work yet from Dr. Steven Jones, “9/11: Science & Society – A Lecture to a Worldwide University.” Recorded in Australia in November of 2009, Dr. Jones recommends this DVD as his “go to” lecture that is a culmination and synthesis of his many years of dedication to 9/11 research. See it in our online store now.

From the beginning, Dr. Jones makes it clear that he misses teaching physics at Brigham Young University (BYU) and that he is grateful for the opportunity he now has to teach to a “world-wide university” of “quizzical, critical-thinking students” who are not afraid to “take the bull by the horns”.

He also begins by explaining the peer review process by way of a controversial paper he published in 1986 in a journal called Physical Review Letters. The BYU hypothesis presented observations involving nuclear fusion that had never been seen before, and the paper was challenged by members of the scientific community. (This was not the "cold fusion" hypothesis advanced by Pons and Fleischmann, whose claims offered the very welcome but unsubstantiated promise of ultra-cheap power. Actually, Jones had earlier participated in refuting that hypothesis.) The findings of the paper were100% reproducible by experiment and thereby confirmed. This is one branch of the expected course of scientific inquiry when controversial findings are published in peer-reviewed journals: challenges are raised, experiments are conducted, and the findings are either substantiated or not. However, as Dr. Jones points out, none of his papers on the physical evidence of 9/11 have been challenged in this way. He also issues a formal challenge to other scientists to rebut any of his papers on 9/11 via the peer review process.


Dr. Jones, a highly accomplished physicist and a humanitarian, takes great care to describe the highly advanced red-gray chips of nano-thermite composite incendiary/explosive found in the WTC dust samples (Photo courtesy of John Gannon)

He effectively uses portions of four papers in this presentation. The first, “Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Completely Collapse?”, is the only one that was not published in an established peer-reviewed journal. The other three are: "Fourteen Points of Agreement with Official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction", "Environmental Anomalies at the World Trade Center: Evidence for Energetic Materials", and "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe". Dr. Jones is not the lead author in all these papers and he is sincerely honored and deeply grateful to have found highly qualified individuals to work with on this incredibly important issue.

Of course the bulk of this ground-breaking DVD focuses on the mysterious small red-gray chips found in all four samples of dust produced during the destruction of the World Trade Center that were collected and analyzed by this international scientific team. These chips are found to be composed of nano-sized particles of iron oxide and aluminum, intimately mixed, embedded in a carbon-containing matrix. These tiny crystals of iron oxide and wafers of aluminum make up a nano- engineered version of the incendiary thermite, which reacts more than hot enough (about 4000°F) to produce molten iron. In the material studied by Jones and his team, these particles’ size and configuration allow them to be engineered with highly energetic properties. They ignite when heated to 420°C. and when they ignite they produce the same molten iron microspheres that were found (but unexplained) by the US Geological Survey and others in studies of the WTC dust. Dr. Jones discusses the profound implications of these discoveries in this presentation.

Breaking away from the physical evidence that has been his primary focus, Dr. Jones also covers the irrefutable evidence that the government misled New Yorkers about the toxicity of the dust. That dust, it turns out, was in some cases as caustic as drain cleaner, and breathing it had devastating consequences for the rescue workers at Ground Zero.

Jones also points to the enormous volumes of “put options” – bets made in the week before 9/11 that the airlines whose planes were commandeered and other companies affected by the attacks would soon drop in value dramatically – indicating clear foreknowledge of the impending attack. Dylan Ratigan, working for Bloomberg News, called this “…insider trading at the worst, most horrific, most evil use you’ve ever seen in your life.” These trades have been estimated to be worth in the neighborhood of 15 billion dollars. An analysis was presented in a peer-reviewed paper in the Journal of Business and has also gone unchallenged.

“a brilliant physicist and humanitarian…”

He also touches on the advance warnings the U.S. received from at least 11 different foreign countries, some of the omissions of the 9/11 Commission Report, including the testimony of Department of Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta. Also covered is the inside story of Jones’ early retirement from BYU and continued work there.

Just as he did in his conventional physics career, in analyzing 9/11, Jones uses physical evidence, common sense, and the laws of physics to unequivocally demonstrate the absurdity of the official explanation for the destruction of the three WTC skyscrapers. We anxiously await his next installment, expected this Spring on DVD, entitled “Hypothesis”, in which we will all be enriched with his inside story – his personal odyssey which has led him to take a brave stand for 9/11 Truth and Justice.
