it was 800 degrees in that place

  • what she says: I'm fine
  • what she means: Jet fuel melts anywhere from 800 to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit. Steel melts at 2750 degrees Fahrenheit. Why did those steel beams melt? The thermal expansion coefficient of steel is ~12*10-6 if strained, E = ∂∆T E = 12*10-6 (1000) E =0.0012m. The metal would therefore expand about 12mm. Would this be enough? 9/11 was an inside job. Is this just a ploy to expand national security using only tragedy as a crutch? Bush did this as an excuse to invade the Middle East and reap the oil benefits. According to NASDAQ, a single barrel of oil is roughly $56.16. In September of 2001, the price of crude oil per barrel went from $22.37 to $18.73 in October. Coincidence? Has America changed for the better as far as national security? Or worse? How can we truly open our eyes as a nation under God?

Central Cygnus Skyscape : In cosmic brush strokes of glowing hydrogen gas, this beautiful skyscape unfolds across the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy and the center of the northern constellation Cygnus the Swan. The featured image spans about six degrees. Bright supergiant star Gamma Cygni to the upper left of the image center lies in the foreground of the complex gas and dust clouds and crowded star fields. Left of Gamma Cygni, shaped like two luminous wings divided by a long dark dust lane is IC 1318, whose popular name is understandably the Butterfly Nebula. The more compact, bright nebula at the lower right is NGC 6888, the Crescent Nebula. Some distance estimates for Gamma Cygni place it at around 1,800 light-years while estimates for IC 1318 and NGC 6888 range from 2,000 to 5,000 light-years. via NASA
