Radiation still so intense, the area is highly dangerous
A heavy layer of radioactive ash in Rajasthan, India, covers a three-square mile area, ten miles west of Jodhpur. Scientists are investigating the site, where a housing development was being built.
For some time it has been established that there is a very high rate of birth defects and cancer in the area under construction. The levels of radiation there have registered so high on investigators' gauges that the Indian government has now cordoned off the region. Scientists have unearthed an ancient city where evidence shows an atomic blast dating back thousands of years, from 8,000 to 12,000 years, destroyed most of the buildings and probably a half-million people. One researcher estimates that the nuclear bomb used was about the size of the ones dropped on Japan in 1945.
Anomalous radioactivity was recorded in two ancient
slag dumps spread on the surface near Bansda (24°35′N
lat., 70°09′E long.) and Dhavadiya (24°30′N lat.,
70°05′E long.) villages, Udaipur District, Rajasthan.
The slag, with a range of high to low radioactivity levels,
is the remnant of ancient smelting in the area, probably
for copper. Six samples showing low radioactivity
in Bansda contain an average of 0.030% U3O8, while
five moderately radioactive samples analysed contain
0.225% U3O8 and four highly radioactive samples analysed
contain 1.15% U3O8. The 15 samples contain on
an average 0.627% copper, 719 ppm zinc, 329 ppm
cobalt and 133 ppm vanadium. Fifteen samples from
Dhavadiya slag assayed on an average contain 0.040%
U3O8, 0.297% Cu, 292 ppm Zn and 250 ppm Co. The
extent of crystallization seen in the slag is intriguing
because an over-cooled melt generally forms glass.

Heavens, do you suppose they caused that gigantic crater that digs into the eastern side of Canada too? Surely such great and powerful weapons could be the only cause of such a tremendous calamity.
