Abstract [en]

The PAMELA experiment is a satellite-borne apparatus designed to study charged particles in the cosmic radiation, with a particular focus on antiparticles. The detector is housed on the Resurs-DK1 satellite and it is taking data since June 2006. The main parts of the apparatus are a magnetic spectrometer, which is equipped with a silicon-microstrip tracking system and which is used to measure the rigidity and the charge of particles, and a silicon/tungsten electromagnetic calorimeter which provides particle identification. The main results about the antiparticles component of cosmic rays obtained during the first 500 days of data taking are summarized here.
