    I suggest a UAV which could land, take a soil sample, and take off again. Easy. :)

    An advanced nation like Pakistan possesses teleportation technology. I am sure it could teleport some of its jihadis...oops I meant spies to India and take the soil sample.What is the need of UAVs and RCs.:rofl:

    Why didn't they take a air sample of pakistan some radiation would have been detected. When pakistan
    Conducted their test us u-2 detected minimal levels over pakistan.

    Analysis of irradiated soil would be much more definitive in determining weapon yield, I believe. Downwind sampling of radiation levels would have to be combined with cloud observation immediately after the blast to be useful for those calculations.

    Why we do not gift the pakis the sand. Mix it up with some GSLV exhaust residue and a contract note from national stock exchange and also a book of the Indian Constitution.

    SInce the test were in 1998 .. is it any useful now(being test could be inconclusive now)... most residue is underground and i would be under the impression that the above ground soil would have at least moved or lost quick decay particles.. this being a desert
