Joe McKibben was the physicist and engineer from Wisconsin who pushed the button on the first atomic explosion at White Sands, New Mexico. The site is now a national monument. Although he was an avid physicist and engineer who liked to look at the world in a different light, and considered the pushing of the button a minor role, he will always be remembered best for this action.
