Anyone that has seriously researched the 2009 nano-thermite paper, and the attempts to debunk it, is bound to have heard of Ivan Kminek and read some of his posts on the subject. Unfortunately for all of us, the respected chemist and author has passed away only sixty years old.
My condolences to his family and friends.
Kminek had been working on interesting experiments which he hoped would help to refute the 2009 paper, and discussing the results with me. I will post an article or two at a later date to go over our debate. Kminek was the only member of the "debunking side" of the JREF 9/11 forum that knew what he was talking about, so he will be missed - Rest In Peace.
