Computer Simulation of 9/11 Attacks

Scientists with Purdue Univervisty has posted a computer simulation of the 9/11 attack that shows what probably happened when the first plane hit the north tower. It covers just 3/4 of a second in realtime and shows what might have happened as the plane tore into and through the building. It also seperated out the jet fuel to show how it was spread thoughout the two floors helping with the eventual collapse of the building.
