PLATYPUS Lost in Space

With a 25-foot tall retractable rocket, People Looking Amongst The Yonder Planets Up in Space featured a diverse crew of astronauts, and was awarded the 2015 “Out of This World” theme 2015 Space Cadet award.

The PLATYPUS has been an amazing sight at Baltimore Kinetic races for over a decade:

  • 2014 as PLATYPUS LOST
  • 2013 as PURPLE PLATYPUS
  • 2012 as El PLATYPUS
  • 2011 (Grand Champion)
  • 2010 (Best Pit Crew award)
  • 2009 (People’s Choice)
  • 2008
  • 2007 (Engineering award)
  • 2006 (Engineering and People’s Choice)
  • 2005 (Grand Champion)

and before that, David Hess created Louie the Dog:

  • 2004 (Golden Flipper award)
  • 2003 (Engineering award)

and he was rumored associated with:

This child knows how to use a smile on a stick, while Astronaut Hess treads slowly in the low-gravity blazing Baltimore sunlight.

PLATYPUS never needs pushing in the mud (or perhaps it’s too heavy to benefit from pushing). Pilots crank through in low gear.

PLATYPUS always looks a party on the water, with a rear paddlewheel, oars, punt pole, and a didgeridoo.
