Stack four eggs one on top of the other. Glue them together and make a tower out of them. Ensure the structure is stable and will not topple.
Now break the top egg. Hit it with your spoon and similate an aircraft hitting it.
Will the three eggs below the top egg break all the way to the floor?
No because the mass of the top egg will be difused and free to deflect around the shells of the lower eggs.
Exactly like the towers.
