Thursday, October 23rd — Scotch Tape

October 24, 2008

Today I Learned…

…that peeling scotch tape in a vacuum produces X-rays.

Scientists aren’t quite sure how or why yet, but apparently it has something to do with the two surfaces rubbing against eachother.  You don’t have to worry, because the effect does not happen in an environment with an atmosphere.  The rays produced are powerful enough to take a picture of your hand bones, however!

I also learned that my friend Xannie will be helping me and my hemi-demi-semi twin with our Halloween/stage costume of Doctor Horrible!  She’s going to do a bang-up job, I’m sure.
