The NIST Theory does not explain how Building 7 collapsed, says Chris7.
He's right. I asked Michael Newman at NIST about it and he said the main thrust of both studies was understanding what caused the collapse. After that, "gravity took care of the rest." So the minute detail of the NIST report gives way to very short explanations once the onset of collapse occurs. I had to do a lot of research independent of NIST once I tried understanding the collapse itself.
