It's my understanding that thermite burns very hot. That would account for the steel core columns melting despite the jet fuel (kerosene) not being able to burn hot enough to melt the steel. From what I understand, the collapse happened at near free fall speed. That doesn't make very much sense to me when the official explanation was something about a pancaking effect. Wouldn't the floors that got pancaked down on have caused some level of resistance (thus, slowing the speed of the fall?)

Isn't that consistent with the fact that the fires were still burning in the rubble a month later?

The building falling down is one thing. Having the steel melt is entirely a different story.

Right. Except 3 buildings came down.
