66. Thank you
However, I really doubt you need a powerdown. You would probably need a powerdown to do it properly (you would actually need to vacate the building for some weeks to do controlled demolition properly), but both towers threw debris several hundred feet in various directions, so it wasn't done properly. Unfortunately, I have no idea whether this was due to too many explosives, too few, poor placement, detonation of explosives on impact, too much stuff left in the towers, poor timing, restrictions on placement due to the need for secrecy or what. If I had to come off the fence, I'd probably go for not enough explosives in the perimeter.
