thats just weird! im shure thare are all kinds of stuff like this just waiting to be found.

He suggests that with some refinements, the process might be harnessed for making inexpensive X-ray machines for paramedics or for places where electricity is expensive or hard to get. After all, you could peel tape or do something similar in such machines with just human

You nailed it...that is just weird. That's up there with the flashes of light from wintergreen lifesavers and the mentos/diet pop propulsion system. Not something they cover in Physics 101!

Well, there goes my plans on taping things up in a vaccuum.

The glue slows down the electrons from the tape separating and they emit x-rays, I'll be damned!

Well now, I never heard about this in my physics classes, and they were for radiography. I'll be asking our physicist at work next time I see him.

I cannot believe in the 20 years of shoot xrays I have never heard about this.

Nice find. I may have to reproduce this experiment.

That was a fantastic find slayerfan.

How about Gamma Rays from duct tape?

I suppose if someone made a static generator in a vaccuum tube lined with sticky glue, that would perhaps become something...not safe?

I may be giving someone out there idea's now?

Fascinating Mr. Slayerfan. Just thought I would say hi.

That was really neat to read about and see.Thanks for sharing this.

Interesting when I saw this a little while back, and damned interesting now... I'm starting to think a Star Trek-type warp generator will be discovered by someone in their basement struggling to plug in a device not meant for 220 volts, that or another Darwin Award nominee in the making.

Only That is fascinating. Really.

A vacuum has the ether left in it.

Static electricity is ever present at 100 to 500 ions per cu cm.
So any charge on the tape can be in the kilo volts.

The van de graff mechanical static electricity generator
was used for dental x-ray machines but had to be
contained in a vacuum chamber.

The Tesla coil is used now for dental x-rays.
