Visitor Tips and News About NASA-Themed McDonald's
The astronaut is not inflatable! It is built of fiberglass by Houston-based artist John Knott. He has built many other sculptures in Houston, including dino bones, the Giant Swallowtail Caterpillar (he has a small plaque next to it, but most of his work is uncredited) and "Dung Hill" at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, and the "Skeleton Man on a Bicycle" at the Houston Health Museum.
Also, his work "Hot Rod Heffer" is part of the Houston Cow Parade.[A. Braun, 06/19/2013]

The gold-visored astronaut clutching an order of Large Fries looks suspiciously like an Inflatable. There may be other space-themed attractions on this approach to NASA's Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center.
