Library Finds! (YL Edition – X-rays!)

118 years ago this month, Wilhelm Röntgen, a German physicist, produced and detected electromagnetic radiation in a wavelength range today known as X-rays. He received the first Nobel Prize in Physics in 1901. In 2004 Element 111 was named after him by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) in honor of his accomplishments. Here are a few titles we have that look into this discovery:
