Roamy here.  I found this press release, looking up the answer to a reader’s comment.  There will be a series of tests on a mockup of the Orion space capsule, but the capsule itself will not be pressurized.  Looks like someone was watching Mythbusters and came up with a cheap solution for added buoyancy. 

Of course, I’m old enough that when I think of lots of ping pong balls, I think of Captain Kangaroo.

P.S.  Go Hokies!
