Former NIST Employee Speaks Out with LTE in Europhysics News

The more he investigated, “the more it became apparent that NIST had reached a predetermined conclusion by ignoring, dismissing, and denying the evidence.” — Peter Ketcham, Former NIST Employee

Two days ago, Europhysics News released its first issue since the publication of “15 years later: On the physics of high-rise building collapses,” which has now been viewed nearly 350,000 times since its release — and which even caused the magazine's server to break down at one point.

Lo and behold, on page 43 is a startling and extraordinary letter to the editor by a former employee of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Peter Michael Ketcham, who worked at NIST from 1997 until 2011.

In his letter, Mr. Ketcham makes it clear that he did not contribute to NIST’s World Trade Center investigation. In fact, it wasn't until last August that he began reading the NIST WTC reports and watching documentaries challenging NIST’s findings. The more he investigated, he writes, “the more it became apparent that NIST had reached a predetermined conclusion by ignoring, dismissing, and denying the evidence.

Mr. Ketcham closes his stunning 500-word rebuke by calling upon NIST to “blow the whistle on itself now” before awareness of the “disconnect between the NIST WTC reports and logical reasoning” grows exponentially.

The courageous stand Mr. Ketcham has taken in criticizing the reports issued by his former employer of 14 years is yet another sign of the rapidly increasing skepticism toward the official 9/11 narrative among scientific and technical professionals. No doubt, his emergence will help accelerate the path toward exposing NIST's WTC reports as false and unscientific.

We have even more heartening news on top of this incredible development: Mr. Ketcham has agreed to be interviewed on camera as early as next week.

Please chip in today to help us raise $5,000 so that we can cover the unbudgeted travel and production costs of this interview as well as the cost of sending out press releases and another mailing to the employees and contractors who worked on the NIST WTC investigations. Your generous donation will enable us to produce a high-quality video interview — which we hope will be viewed far and wide within the next two weeks — and carry out other initiatives to make the most of this opportunity.

Chip In Today

Here are five simple things you can do now — and in the coming weeks — to help get the story out:

  • Donate!
  • Send everyone you know a link to the most recent issue of Europhysics News today, directing them to Peter Ketcham’s LTE on page 43.
  • Share our Facebook post about this news today.
  • Circulate our forthcoming press release next week.
  • Share the video interview with Peter Ketcham when it is released. Stay tuned for that!


On this Thanksgiving week, we are especially grateful for all that you have done to pave the way so that individuals like Peter Ketcham feel supported when they speak up. Now let’s turn this newest development into a big breakthrough!
