Why the Towers Fell

Program Overview


For most Americans, the image of the collapse of the World Trade Center towers was not only a scene of unforgettable horror, it was a moment of unimaginable consequence. Who could have guessed that a steel behemoth of such size and strength—a building so massive that it had its own zip code—could actually be reduced to 150 feet of dust and rubble? On "Why the Towers Fell," NOVA follows a blue-ribbon team of forensic engineers and presents their conclusions in the most definitive explanation yet seen by the American public of how and why the towers collapsed.
