What are you conducting research on?

On 8 November 1895, the 50-year old physician Conrad Röntgen (meaning X-ray in German and soon became its namesake), discovered X-rays in his laboratory at the University of Würzburg. This earned him the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1901. His discovery revolutionised medical diagnostics among others and led to discoveries such as radioactivity. Röntgen died on 10 February 1923 in Munich.
