What is this button for?

I can't figure what this button is for. I have a 2011 automatic. Looked in the manual and can't find anything on it. Help!

Look under 'Hill Descent Control" in the manual.

It throttles down the flux capacitor from the maximum number of jiggawatts to prevent down hill over-speed conditions.

After studying the graphic intensely for several hours, and cross referencing it with our cultural heuristics, my archaeology professor agrees that it's the button you push when driving down hills with a tractor tire strapped to the roof of your Jeep.

It's actual function is a mystery though.
