A dual energy radiography method using basis decomposition was developed, the process
to do it is shown and it is compared against an alternate more direct method of analyzing the
data using the logarithm of the original data, concluding that this second method does work
but it is not better than basis decomposition.
My dissertation for my Astrophysics MPhys degree at the University of Liverpool compiles research, simulations and calculations to come to concise conclusions about the feasibility of a human mission as stated in the project title.
