We are just releasing a 15 minute video on WAVES for grades 9-12 Physics,
which has about 20 seconds of the actual collapse. The cause were wind
initiated vibrations or waves which I would think were the natural harmonic
frequency of the bridge. Our science advisor Dr. O. roger Anderson, at the
Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory, could explain in complete detail.
