    My toner arrived. It is non-magnetic slightly magnetic A small pile of it burns slowly by itself. The resultant "slag" is somewhat magnetic. No obvious microspheres, but some shiny bits. [ATTACH] Hard to say with all the carbon. [ATTACH] I...

    Have any of the 9/11 Truth activists measured the iron microsphere frequency in the dust samples they obtained?

    I just finished writing the first draft of my book. This is my rebound research.

    A couple more microsphere creation mechanisms to consider, probably insignificant, but interesting to the subject in general. Snapping Steel. Tensile failure. I was attempting to bend a "Stanley" utility knife blade to make a temporary...

    All of the RJ-Lee samples were collected AFTER June 8 2002, all from the Deutsche Bank building (aka Banker's Trust Building) at 130 Liberty street, directly south of WTC2. June 2002 is after the removal of all the steel from the site (using...

    How Much Iron Microsphere's were at WTC Ground Zero after 9/11

    "How much", or "how many"? AE911 says: http://www1.ae911truth.org/home/348-previously-molten-iron-spheres-were-in-wtc-dust-reveal-use-of-thermitic-materials.html The fraction of microspheres in the dust varied (between 0.2 and 1.3 % for USGS...

    This interesting video suggests that metal filings from a grinder are so small that they spontaneously ignite in air - a property called pyrophoricity [ATTACH] They demonstrate the creation of a tube of this iron via a chemical process, and...

    I suspect a mixture. I'm really unsure what the precise mechanism is for either formation. Consider a "wire" (in the steel wool). The surface of this wire probably has a very thin layer of iron oxide. Along comes heat. the surface of the wire...

    I'm sure there were plenty of sparks, and hence more microspheres. But not enough for "flows". The larger pieces of steel would not burn.

    I think they are mostly solid. Hard to say. There are some that do look a bit like a popped bubble, but quite rare. [img]
