NASA's moon-bound mannequin astronaut named after hero of troubled Apollo 13 mission

(CNN)After a weeks-long challenge to name NASA's moon-bound mannequin (or "Moonikin" as NASA has dubbed it), the people have chosen: Campos is expected to take off on the uncrewed Artemis I moon mission slated for November.

The name is a dedication to the late Arturo Campos, a Mexican American electrical engineer at NASA who was instrumental in bringing the imperiled Apollo 13 crew safely back home in 1970, according to NASA.
As the Apollo 13 crew was en route to attempt the third moon landing, an oxygen tank exploded (prompting the famous line, "Houston we've had a problem," said by astronaut Jim Lovell ) -- cutting that journey short.
