What is the forensic science of investigating a disaster? Why did the World Trade twin towers collapse? These are just a few of the questions to be answered during the film screening and panel discussion of the  “The Science of 9/11” on Tuesday, November 15 at 7:00 p.m. in the UTC University Center Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

The event both commemorates the 10 years since September 11 and explores scientific questions about the collapse of the World Trade Towers being raised by now over 1,500 architects, engineers, military personnel, and scientists.
