"Searching for new Physics in the cosmic rays with AMS-02"

Abstract:
The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer 02 on board of the International Space Station, is taking data continuously since May 19 2011.  AMS-02 measurements of cosmic rays fluxes are of unprecedented accuracy and allow to open a new window on high energy processes happening in our galaxy. In this talk I will review the most recent AMS-02 results, and I will discuss how they can possibly lead to reveal new physics.
I will also mention additional measurements that may support AMS-02  data and break the interpretation degeneracy.
