Description

The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) is a multi-purpose particle physics detector designed to perform accurate measurements of cosmic ray (CR) charged particles in the GeV-TeV range. In 2011 it was installed onboard the International Space Station (ISS) and it continues taking data steadily since then. So far, AMS-02 has collected more than 100 billion charged cosmic ray events. AMS-02 has provided precise measurements that cannot be fully explained within the current understanding of CRs origin and propagation. The latest AMS results will be presented.
