Did the collapse of the South Tower further weaken the North Tower causing it to collapse?

Since the South Tower collapse first do you think it might have caused the North Tower to collapse sooner. The buildings sat only 50 yards from one another and so much debris and energy from thrown into the North Tower. Do you think that played significant role in the North Tower collapsing only 29 mins later?

    I accept a plane crash caused the collapse of both towers. I have no reason to extrapolate further.

    sure go spreading it around the world how to make buildings collapse. then thine enemies can kill even more of you.

    leetle old ira dont mind knowing I'm sure and BLM arent far behind.

    there are specific reasons buildings collapse every US school child knows them if you dont know you obviously either arent US or need to occupy a seat in grade school longer.

    No.  They were struck at different times and in different places, but it was inevitable they were both going to collapse. Basic physics.

    No. Though the South Tower was hit 17 minutes after the North Tower, the impact took place between floors 77 and 85, impacting 9 floors, to 7 floors in the North Tower between floors 93 and 99.

    Two extra floors impacted and the impact taking place 16 floors lower meant substantially more weight for those damaged and soon to be super-heated and weakened steel support beams to support. Raw physics tells you that the South Tower would not last as long, and it didn't. It came down 56 minutes after being hit while the North Tower fell 1:42 after being hit - and 29 minutes after the South Tower fell.

    There were two planes  a few minutes apart that flew into the towers.  One flew into the South Tower and the other plane flew into the North Tower. It is possible that the collapse of the one tower may have had an effect on the other tower.  That being said it was the structure of both towers that made their collapse inevitable.

    No. You can clearly see from the many videos that there were a series of explosions as both towers fell. This is a signature of planted explosives.

    The towers had been undergoing "structural maintenance" over the weeks prior to their demise. This is when the demolition charges were planted.

    Larry Silverstein was recorded saying "pull it" in reference to building 7. "Pull it" is a demolition term meaning "bring it down". This clearly proved that building 7 was wired for demolition prior to 9-11.

    According to the official story, Building 7 was damaged from debris from the other towers and fell as a result of fire. Falling because of fire could never have been anticipated until it actually happened.

    But there is footage of a BBC reporter talking about Building 7 going down moments before it actually does. As she speaks, you can see Building 7 going down behind her. This proves without a doubt that the BBC knew about it in advance and was following a script.

    And if the BBC knew about it in advance, there's no question that the whole thing was a planned exercise. There was no terrorist attack (other than domestic terrorism perpetrated by our own government).

    The "planes" that everyone saw had to have been something else. As seen by the attack on the second tower, as the plane hits the building, it creates a huge hole exactly in the same shape as the silhouette of a plane.

    The problem with this is, planes are made of carbon fiber and aluminum and would have been no match for the structural steel frame of the buildings.

    The video below shows the strength of each of these materials using a hydraulic press. As you can see, the carbon fiber failed at 30,000 lbs/sq in while aluminum failed at 64,000 lbs/sq in. By comparison, structural steel failed at 141,000 lbs/sq in.

    This conclusively proves that no airplane could have penetrated the buildings. The massive damage was caused by explosive charges.

    Don't think so. Both towers collapsed from the top down.

    An intelligent question about this! I wonder and I'd love to know the answer too.
