Orion Crew Module
Is this new? Current? I've never heard of it before.

Nope. Not new. The Orion CEV has been part of the Constellation project since its inception. I'm not sure where it will go now that Ares I has been canceled, but if I had to guess I suppose it will end up getting used on a Delta IV or Atlas V as part of a bid for NASA's COTS LEO manned program.
According to Wikipedia it will go on the Shuttle Derived Launch Vehicle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shuttle...Launch_Vehicle)

It is still current, but not new. It has been in the works for probably a decade. It's future is in question though in light of the cancellation of Constellation.
