UPI News Service, 07/26/2011 

A butter sculpture of an astronaut was set up at the Ohio State Fair Tuesday in honor of the just-ended space shuttle program.

The astronaut sits at a shuttle control panel, eating freeze-dried ice cream. Next to him in the Dairy Building at the state fairgrounds in Columbus stand the fair's traditional Holstein cow and its calf, also made of butter, The Columbus Dispatch reported. They don't melt because they're kept in a 45-degree glass case.

Three sculptors from Cincinnati artists -- Bob Kling, Alex Balz and Paul Brooke -- made the figures.

Nineteen Ohio natives or residents have flown on the shuttle, the best-known of them former Sen. John Glenn, who earlier was the first American to orbit Earth in 1961, the Dispatch said.

Last year's fair featured butter statues of Cincinnati Bengals safety Chinedum Ndukwe and Cleveland Browns offensive lineman Joe Thomas, along with a butter football.

The state fair runs from Wednesday through Aug. 7.
