I'm not sure EG&G ever pushed the button on any nuke. They made the neutron generator and handled the instrumentation.

EG&G pop-quiz:

Which three US above ground detonations did EG&G not "push the button" on ?

Answer can be found in this damn funny & interesting book:


Poul-Henning Kamp       | UNIX since Zilog Zeus 3.20
phk at FreeBSD.ORG         | TCP/IP since RFC 956
FreeBSD committer       | BSD since 4.3-tahoe    
Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
