A superhero in disguise

In 1999 my eight grade English teacher mentioned a short story that I've wanted to read since then, but haven't been able to find.

It takes place in the future. The main character is the only astronaut on a spacecraft. The cockpit contains only two controls: a button that reads "Go" and one that says "Stop." What the protagonist doesn't know is that the "Stop" button was not constructed to be functional.

Anyone know the name of this book?
