Wow...this gets weirder and weirder...

I can "sense" how a writer or an editor used "Orbiting" to replace  
"Orbital"without blinking an eye back in the '80s or '90s...or a  
proofreader changing "Orbital" to "Orbiting" back then and thus  
changing the acronym in all future literature...

I started this all because I use it as a "trivia question" during my  
satellite presentations: "What does the acronym, OSCAR, stand for?"

I do not mean to irritate anyone nor instigate trouble (honest,  

Thanks for the feedback!
