Ernie Lam asked me to remind all that today is special. Here at Iowa we have a large cake that says "Happy 116th , Ray" in the radiology area. On Nov. 8, 1895 Professor Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered the x ray. It is called the x ray, because, at the time, he did not know what it was, and hence named it with the algebraic symbol for the unknown, x. It should be noted that by the time he went public at the end of December he had discovered/worked out pretty much everything that we know about the x ray today.
So, Happy 116th Ray!
