The First X-Ray
The first ever X-ray image was taken in 1895 by Wilhelm Röntgen, awarded the first Nobel Prize in Physics, 1901. The image of his wife Bertha's hand (wedding ring clearly visible) propelled Röntgen into an international celebrity. Röntgen named the discovery X-rays, after the mathematical term "X" which denotes something unknown. (Photo and caption by Nobel Prize Institute)
