Artist's Description

This photo was taken at the Liberty Science Center, June 2012, in their Skyscraper exhibit. It is a piece of the WTC.

In September, 2001 terrorists destroyed several of the Center’s buildings, including the massive 110 -story twin towers. The stated reason for this action was to protest the United States’ support of the nation of Israel and its people. The terrorist attack only served to solidify the bond between the U.S. and Israel, and caused wars in Afghanistan and elsewhere, and the toppling of the Taliban government in Afghanistan. Thousands died when the twin tower fell, and millions were emotionally and psychologically scarred.

The exhibit sign states the main reason to display this bent beam is to show everyone how hot the beams became during the crash, explosion, fires and collapse. It does boggle the mind that a huge steel beam like this one could have bent almost in half like this.

Another view of this beam is in my next photograph.
