ABSTRACT
The article presents a brief background on the discovery of the x-ray. X-ray was named X because of the unexplainable nature of this form of radiation. After a weekend of experiments with cathode rays and Crookes tubes, University of Würzburg physics professor William Röntgen produced the discovery of a new type of ray. After continuous experiments, Röntgen's hand was caught in the rays. The resulting image showed the outlines of his bones.
