Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth

We have scrutinized what has been presented in various publications as evidence that nuclear blasts occurred at the WTC, but found none of the arguments substantiated.

New FAQ cites the absence of any evidence consistent with the nuclear hypothesis

By AE911Truth WritingTeam
Several authors promote the claim that nuclear blasts destroyed the World Trade Center (WTC) on September 11, 2001. Suggested scenarios are, for example, that fission bombs, fusion-boosted fission bombs, neutron bombs, thermonuclear bombs, pure fusion deuterium-tritium bombs, or exploding nuclear reactors, caused its destruction.

We provide a detailed reply in our “FAQ #15: Various authors claim that nuclear blasts caused or contributed to the destruction of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Why does AE911Truth not endorse that claim?”


Devices to detect elevated levels of alpha, beta, and gamma radiation are neither large nor difficult to use, and are available online.

In Sections I and II of this FAQ, we discuss two independent reasons why we regard the probability that any nuclear blasts occurred at the WTC as close to zero. We also address arguments that have been brought forward with respect to these two reasons.

In Section III, we consider problems found in publications we have reviewed that promote nuclear destruction scenarios, and we assess four claims that have been presented frequently in such publications.
