Gunslinger Doc Holliday dies, the X-ray is discovered by accident, John F. Kennedy is elected president, and the Florida recount begins, all on this day.
1895: While experimenting with electricity, German physicist Wilhelm Röntgen discovers the X-ray. Nearly two weeks after his discovery, he would take the very first picture using X-rays of his wife's hand. The achievement would earn him the first Nobel Prize in Physics in 1901.
