We review shortly the results obtained during the two science runs O1 and O2 with the advanced gravitational wave detectors LIGO and Virgo. Then, we focus on the middle and long term evolution of the gravitational wave detectors on the Earth with emphasis to their perspectives for the advancement on fundamental physics and astronomy.

The DArk Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE) is a space mission, resulting from the collaboration of Chinese, Italian, and Swiss institutions. Since December 2015, DAMPE orbits at the altitude of 500 km and collects data regularly. The detector is made of four sub-detectors: top layers of plastic scintillators, a silicon-tungsten tracker, a deep BGO calorimeter (32 radiation lengths), and a...

PAMELA is a medium-sized space experiment for the detection of cosmic rays that took data for 10 years from 2006 to 2016. Composed of a magnetic spectrometer and several auxiliary detectors it has been completely realized, at a very reasonable cost, by the collaboration: its different parts at Physics Departments in Italy, Russia, Sweden and Germany and finally the integration in the clean...
154. The AMS-02 detector on the International Space Station - Status and highlights, after 7 years on orbit
Matteo Duranti (PG)
The AMS-02 detector is operating on the International Space Station (ISS) since May the 19th, 2011. More than 120 billion events have been collected by the instrument in the first 7 years of data taking. This unprecedented amount of data is being used to perform accurate measurements of the different Cosmic Rays components. In this contribution, the published results and the highlights of the...
