Wilhelm Röntgen discovered x-rays on November 8th, 1895 when he discovered treated cardboard he was using in routine experiments glowed in certain situations – the result of radiation hitting the surface. X-Ray Day celebrates his discovery, and all things x-ray; from the use of x-rays in obvious places such as hospitals and healthcare, to less well-known environments such as food safety and improved crop germination.
