STS-133 Mission Specialist Tim Kopra was injured Saturday in a bicycle accident.  One report speculated it was a broken hip; not good for space travel.

How about turning Kopra into a space test to see how his bones heal/don’t heal in zero gravity?

Robotic space systems tend to have very few broken bones, perhaps because the robots themselves find little joy in bicycle rides.
