Proof That Jet Fuel Weakens the Hell Out of Steel Beams

Purgatory Iron Works answers the inane internet argument about whether or not jet fuel can melt steel beams in this mic dropping video. The argument has always been that jet fuel burns at 1500 degrees and that steel only melts at 2700 degrees so therefore jet fuel cannot melt steel beams and 9/11 was a conspiracy.

And yes, jet fuel does burn at 1500 degrees and steel can only melt at temperatures of 2300 degrees but even if steel wasn’t melting, it loses its strength entirely. It turns into a noodle even if it’s not melting..
