Abstract [en]

The existence of trapped antiprotons in the Earth's inner radiation belt has been theoretically predicted, but not observed. We present a procedure for antiproton selection and the observation results from the PAMELA space experiment measurements. The PAMELA magnetic spectrometer ensures reliable identification of particles and charge signs, value determination, and energy measurement, thus enabling us to experimentally establish the existence of antiprotons trapped in the Earth's inner radiation belt.
