    Anybody catch that show on the twin towers on the History Channel tonight? I was really liking how they explained the pancake collapse, and how the metal melted and buckled. I missed like the first half, anyone know the next time it will air on NOVA?

    i watched that... pretty cool...
    i felt really bad for dude that designed the towers tho... he looked like shit... an dhis office over looked the rubble too...
    the thing thta irritated me (you may have missed it) was that everyone seemed all amazed that the drywall blew apart... golly gee, those guys in the elevator were able to cut through a drywall wall! well no shit! they use it cuz it's light... and who doesn't know you can get through it easy? you can punch through drywall!

    cool show tho...

    I think you are mistaken. Minoru Yamasaki was the architect who designed the WTC and he died in 1986. So he couldn't have looked like shit with his office overlooking the rubble.

    kast is correct....it was the guy who built it, not designed it, who feels terribly bad and has an office overlooking the rubble...

    well...it wasnt so much that....a lot of what they were focusing on was the fact that the inner core of the building was constructed of dryway instead of concrete making the core of the building (where all the stairways were located) less sturdy and more prone to fire. had they been constucted of concrete they may have withstood the intial impact of the jet a little better, as well as enabled many more people, who were above the floors where the plane crashed, to escape. all of that, coupled with the fact that the designers of the building never took into account (and really....why would they have) the temperatures that were
    possible from burning jet fuel, much less considered the fact that the fire proofing could be blown off by the initial explosion of a crashing plane......
