What was the
world's first x-ray picture?
In 1895 Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen,
professor of physics the University of Wurburg in Germany, was doing
experiments with electrical discharges in evacuated glass tubes.
Late in 1895 Wilhelm Röntgen was
alone at night doing his experiments, this time in the dark and noticed
a glow was produced on the wall, which he knew was not caused by
fluorescence or visible light. He named these new, unidentified rays
'X' or if you prefer; X-rays.
After several months of playing with his
discovery he noticed that objects place in the path of the rays cast
shadows and created images on the wall.
Soon after he used a photgraphic plate
and had his wife, Frau Röntgen, place her hand in the path of
the X-rays, creating the world's first X-ray picture.
Röntgen was awarded the very first Nobel Prize in Physics for this
