The ARLISS Project (A Rocket Launch for International Student Satellites | CanSat Comeback Competition) is a collaborative effort between students from all over the world, and high power rocketry enthusiasts, to build, launch, test and recover prototype satellites and rovers in preparation for an Earth orbit or Mars orbit space launch. 
The event was held in Black Rock Desert, Nevada. The rocket reaches 4000km high and the Satellite/Rover was released in the sky. With a parachute, it lands in the middle of the desert and the rover automatically heads the goal point, as if they have really landed on a planet outer space.
