Steven Jones





Steven E. Jones is a physicist and archaeometist, and author of numerous peer-reviewed papers. Jones taught Physics at the 30,000-student Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, for more than 20 years.

His Ph.D research was performed at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center in California and his Ph.D is from Vanderbilit University. During his 28-year career as a physicist, his research has centered on fusion and solar energy as well as archaeometry (the application of physics methods to archaeology). Jones conducted research at the Idaho National Laboratory, in Arco, Idaho, from 1979 to 1985, where he was a senior engineering specialist. He was the principal investigator for experimental Muon-catalyzed fusion from 1982 to 1991 for the U.S. Department of Energy, Division of Advanced Energy Projects. From 1990 to 1993, Jones researched fusion in condensed matter physics and deuterium, for the U.S. Department of Energy and for the Electric Power Research Institute.

Since mid-2005, Jones has been researching the destruction of the World Trade Center skyscrapers. On September 22, 2005, Jones presented the substance of his paper "Why Indeed did the WTC Buildings Collapse?" at a department seminar at BYU. Jones continued to research the issue and publish his findings.

Jones has described how his background relates to his 9/11 research:

In archaeometry, we use advanced physics methods to determine what happened in the past from available evidence. That is just what I'm pursuing in 9-11 research. When I saw the WTC 7 collapse videos, I immediately suspected something was amiss with the official explanation ... but I did not see this video until the springtime of 2005. From that day to this I have vigorously studied data regarding the 9/11 collapses and lack of air defenses and other anomalies.
