Description

Exactly two years ago, the AMS-02 spectrometer was installed on the ISS to start its long mission to perform highly accurate measurements of Cosmic Rays up the TeV region. We discuss the status of the experiment after two years in space and the first results, in particular the measurement of positron/electron ratio up to 350 GeV.
