Note: LxC is the likelihood and consequence rating. This risk is mapped to the official (consolidated) HSRB risk "Risk of Bone Fracture due to Spaceflight-induced Changes to Bone". At this time, only Planetary risk rating colors are being assessed for this risk within HRP for PRR purposes. All Risk Dispositions are assigned by the HSRB for the consolidated risk.
Risk Statement

Given that spaceflight may induce adverse changes in bone ultimate strength with respect to mechanical loads during and post-mission, there is a possibility a fracture may occur for activities otherwise unlikely to induce fracture prior to initiating spaceflight.
