Who landed and first walked on the moon during Apollo 13?
Neil Armstrong was the first person to walk on the Moon, with Buzz Aldrin being the second, on July 20, 1969 (US time). But they were on the Apollo 11 mission, not Apollo 13. Apollo 13, launched on April 11, 1970, had an onboard explosion that prevented a lunar landing. Instead, they circled the Moon and safely returned to Earth. It was the only inflight failure of the 9 Apollo missions to the Moon.

Who launched the space ship eagle?
Eagle was the callsign of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module that placed US astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon on July 20th 1969. The callsign Eagle was only used while the Lunar Module was in flight during its descent to the Lunar surface and ascent to rendezvous with Columbia, the Apollo 11 Command Module. For the rest of the flight the callsign was merely Apollo 11, or 11. On the surface of the moon Eagle was renamed Tranquility Base.
