The PAMELA experiment is a satellite-borne apparatus designed to study charged particles in the cosmic radiation with a particular focus on antiparticles. PAMELA is mounted on the Resurs DK1 satellite that was launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome on June 15 2006. The PAMELA apparatus comprises a time-of-flight system, a magnetic spectrometer, a silicon… CONTINUE READING
