Outer space slip-up

The name of a new spaceship that may one day carry astronauts back to the moon was supposed to be a big secret. But an astronaut floating 220 miles above Earth apparently failed to get the memo.
Jeff Williams let it slip that the eagerly anticipated "crew exploration vehicle" will soon be tagged "Orion."
The outer space cat was let out of the bag when Williams pre-recorded a message from the International Space Station, and the transmission somehow made it onto an open radio channel.
