X-ray vision: what could you see even if you weren't born a Superhero?

M.Sc. Angelika Svetlove (Ph.D. student, University of Goettingen)
X-rays were discovered over 100 years ago and have since been applied in many fields. The concept reached peak exposure in the middle of the last century and gained a lot of popularity in various comic books. These days most people associate x-rays with grey films that are taken to check if any of your bones are broken. Is this really all they are used for these days? And most importantly - what would Superman actually see?
