Description

The PAMELA apparatus was launched into space on June 15, 2006. The experiment is devoted to the precise and extensive measurements of cosmic rays in space, with particular focus on antiparticle from the cosmic radiation within an energy ranges from 100 MeV to 200 GeV. Since July 2006 measurements of antiprotons and positrons are being performed to search for exotic sources, such as a signatur of annihilating dark matter particle. This talk will present newest results of the PAMELA data analyses, with a particular emphasis on the recent measurements of antiproton, positron and electron fluxes up to an energy of 200 GeV. A possible interpretation of the resent PAMELA data in term of secondary and primary production processes will also be discussed.
