4 Discovery Wilhem Roentgen accidently discovered x-rays in 1895 He called it x- radiation because the radiation was confusing to him The name stuck, and we still use it today

5 X-ray Astronomy Satellite X-rays are used for taking pictures of bones and teeth Astronomers use x-rays to study stars, comets, and the sun

6 The only way to see x- rays is by using human made detectors No animals can see x-rays as long as we know Who Can See X-rays?

7 X-ray tube Too much exposure to x-rays can lead to cancer When you have an x-ray taken you have to wear a lead vest Dangers of X-rays
