Small hillock at the centre of Rontgen's floor. Is this hillock only the uppermost part of the once pronounced central peak? - DannyCaes Feb 9, 2014


  • Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen (March 27, 1845 – February 10, 1923) was a German physicist, who, on 8 November 1895, produced and detected electromagnetic radiation in a wavelength range today known as x-rays or Röntgen rays, an achievement that earned him the first Nobel Prize in Physics in 1901.
  • Name given by Arthur and Whitaker in Rectified Lunar Atlas (1963) and approved by IAU in 1964 (Whitaker, 1999, p234).
