During the 1970s, Bonnie Lynn Raitt released a series of roots-influenced
albums that incorporated elements of
blues, rock, folk and country. In 1989,
after several years of critical acclaim but little commercial success, she had
a major hit with the album Nick of Time. The following two albums, Luck of
the Draw
(1991) and Longing in Their Hearts (1994), were also multimillion
sellers, generating several hit singles, including "
Something to Talk About",
"
Love Sneakin’ Up on You", and the ballad "I Can’t Make You Love Me"
(with
Bruce Hornsby on piano).

Raitt has received 10 Grammy Awards. She is listed as number 50 in
Rolling Stone‘s list of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time" and
number 89 on the magazine’s list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of
All Time.

Physicist Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen (above) (1845-1923) became the
first person to observe X-rays, a significant scientific advancement
that would ultimately benefit a variety of fields, most of all medicine,
by making the invisible visible. Rontgenā€™s discovery occurred
accidentally in his Wurzburg, Germany, lab, where he was testing
whether cathode rays could pass through glass when he noticed
a glow coming from a nearby chemically coated screen. He dubbed
the rays that caused this glow X-rays because of their because of
their unknown nature.
