Question:

Why was molton steel found at ground zero?

Molton is formed at 2800 F. Thats a fact. Now jet fuel at its hottest is 1800. Where does the other 1000 degress come in? And it was found at the WTC 7 site. Was this hit by a plane? A simple fire COULD NOT produce molton. This is a fact. Molton is formed during controlled demoliton of a building since all the bombs in the buiding go off and its very very hot. The fact there was MOLTON at the site is shocking to some since it is IMPOSSIBLE for molton to form from jet feul alone. Impossible. It needed another source. Now the claim that I'll get is that it weakened the stell but then we would find weak steel not molton. Why do you seem to throw this off of your shoulder? Do you not want to belive it? I'm no jet fuel guy but I know you cannot make molton by using just jet fuel. This is really proof that 9/11 was an inside job.

Answer:

I think there are things that you are missing here. First of all I looked up the MSDS sheet for Steel from US Steel. Steel is made of all kinds of different metals to start with and the melting/freezing point for steel is 1750 F not 2800 according to US Steel. In addition in the World Trade Center buildings there were all kinds of other materials that are normally used in construction that were all burning at the same time which would have added to the temperatures. Not only was it steel but it was iron, calcium and other building materials too. NIST provides a maximum gas temperature due to WTC fires of 1,000 °C: In no instance did NIST report that steel in the WTC towers melted due to the fires. The melting point of steel is about 1,500 degrees Celsius (2,800 degrees Fahrenheit). Normal building fires and hydrocarbon (e.g., jet fuel) fires generate temperatures up to about 1,100 degrees Celsius (2,000 degrees Fahrenheit). NIST reported maximum upper layer air temperatures of about 1,000 degrees Celsius (1,800 degrees Fahrenheit) in the WTC towers (for example, see NCSTAR 1, figure 6-36) Okay I don't know if you know who NIST is but that is the National Institute of Standards and Technology and they are some pretty smart people. They did not say that the steel melted due to the fires, but they did say that the temperatures surely did get high enough to to melt the steel. If US Steel says the melting point for steel is 1750 and NIST says that the temperatures were around 1800 F then that is high enough to melt the steel. I think the key is that there were other materials burning too.

People who believed the buildings collapsed because of the planes are far far off. 1. Burning jet fuel CANNOT melt steel - FACT! 2. The twin towers were built to withstand a hit from a Boeing 707 - FACT 3. NORAD didn't respond - for the first time EVER! - FACT! 4. The pentagon has the most CCTV cameras than any other buildings in the world and they only release the tape which the plane is not visible, they also confiscated the tape from the store opposite which would have shown the plane - if it existed. State sponsored terrorism has been around for along tI'me, im surprised at how many people still believe the official story.

WTC 7 was not built with a central core like the two big towers were, which allowed it to come down a lot easier than the other two. And the planes didn't have to melt the steel structure holding up the buildings, all they had to do was weaken these structures to where they could no longer hold the weight. RE: Ok fine, since this is what you claim, where are the actual proven facts for this molten steel? Because I have noticed you have no link to a legitimate source available. Still no links to anything legitimate. And 2 thumbs down? Wow, I must be special.

Aircraft frames are made out of aluminum and magnesium which burn very hot once they reach flame point. The other 1000 degrees can come from fire being in a a semi confined space, and heat building over time, plus you can reduce the heat if you add pressure which the building was under to start with. I did like a 2 year stint testing construction materials, I know a little bit about how they behave.
