Best Answer

There was no Apollo 2. Apollo 1 was to have been the first manned Apollo flight, but it caught fire during a routine ground test a month before the scheduled launch. All 3 astronauts inside died.

I think you're asking which astronaut orbited the moon while Armstrong and Aldrin walked below. That man would be Michael Collins, who accompanied Armstrong and Aldrin on Apollo 11.
