The following update from Dr. Leroy Hulsey was posted today on WTC7Evaluation.org. AE911Truth is grateful to the hundreds who have supported the UAF WTC 7 study financially and to the thousands who are eagerly awaiting the release of the UAF WTC 7 report.
To all who have been following the University of Alaska Fairbanks study on the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7:
First, I would like to thank you for your interest in and support of the study.
We had planned to release our findings for public review early this year. However, research often takes unexpected turns, and the more complicated the problem, the more difficult it is to predict the completion date. We are still in the process of studying hypothetical collapse mechanisms and attempting to simulate the building’s failure. Our goal is to determine, with a high degree of confidence, the sequence of failures that may have caused the observed collapse and to rule out those mechanisms that could not have caused the observed collapse.
We will release our findings for public review when we are sure we fully understand the mechanisms that are likely to have caused the observed collapse and those that clearly did not occur and could not have caused the observed collapse. We expect to publish our findings later this year, but we will refrain from naming a completion date, given the unpredictability of the research process.
Again, we thank you for your interest in our study and we appreciate your patience as we strive to bring a truly scientific answer to the important question of how WTC 7 collapsed on September 11, 2001.
