In celebration of X-Ray Day, we thought we would take you back to that pivotal moment in history when a guy in a laboratory, using his wife as a guinea pig, made the miraculous discovery!
It was a dark night in 1895, a guy named Wilhelm asked his wife, Bertha, to place her hand on a photographic plate while he directed rays at it for fifteen minutes. She was taken back and somewhat frightened by the first X-Ray plate of a human hand! She felt like it was a premonition of death. Unfortunately, due to what we feel was probably over exposure to radiation (nothing slips by us!) they both died of cancer.
