The AMS latest results and the impact on the design of future Cosmic Ray Space Experiments

Matteo Duranti (INFN-Perugia)


The AMS-02 experiment provided and is providing measurements on the Cosmic Ray composition and spectral features with an unprecedented accuracy. Its heritage, however, lies not only in its results but also in the approach to develop and design new and even more ambitious space experiments. In this seminar the latest results and highlights of AMS-02 will be presented as well as an overview of what can be the new generation of detectors (HERD, ALADInO and AMS-100) in the short and mid term.
