October 7-8: NASA's iTech Forum holds its semi-annual meeting in Las Cruces to hear ten finalists' proposals for developing cutting-edge technologies applicable to space missions. One finalist, H-Trap One founder Luis Morales, is developing a product that can be used to store hydrogen.

September 19
: NASA and the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute tested a new instrument in a high-altitude balloon flight (up to 22 miles) over New Mexico. Launched from NASA's Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility in Fort Sumner, the balloon landed near Farmington. The instrument measured the density of the sun's corona along with the temperature and speed of electrons in the solar wind. The instrument is being developed to use on a future spaceflight.

September 17
: Construction of Virgin Galactic's next spaceshiptwo progressed with the attachment of the wings to the cabin and fuselage.
