Coming Soon

Coming soon to a DI suite near you: Scotch Tape x-rays.

According to an article in today's Chicago Tribune, physicists have discovered that Scotch tape emits x-rays when peeled off in a vacuum.  Researchers suggest that "the process might be harnessed for making inexpensive x-ray machines for paramedics or for places where electricity is expensive or hard to get."

So, next time we're stuck waiting ages for a portable chest, I'm just going to pump out the air and grab a big roll of tape.
