Animated 9/11

I caught on the news last night the new animation of what exactly happening to the towers at the time of impact. The severing of the support beams, the instant inferno that followed. The researcher are pretty convinced that the initial damage is not what doomed the towers, but the following inferno that fatigues the metals to the point they could no longer do their job of support.
"When the developers of the World Trade Center first designed the complex, they did take into account of an accidental plane crash," said Christoph Hoffman, one of the study's lead researchers. "The only thing they didn't anticipate is the fire. If the crash impacts the water line, then a fire can burn for a long time."
The graphics are amazing. Video can be found on YouTube.
