Intriguing new results from AMS

Top Physicists gather at CERN to discuss unexpected excess of antiprotons measured by AMS

These days the world of Physics meets at CERN to discuss the latest results of the AMS on the International Space Station (ISS).
The “AMS days at CERN” have produced a great deal of attention as it will be presented results at odds with the current astrophysical models. AMS has indeed measured an excess of antiprotons to protons ratio at energies above 20 GeV.
One possible explanation (yet to be proven) is that AMS is seeing the first signals of the long hunted “dark matter”. Other possible explanations are plausible, however, as new models of generation and acceleration of cosmic rays.
AMS will continue to orbit the Earth attached to the ISS for the next 10 years, during which new data acquired by its detectors will help us to discriminate between the different hypothesis.

Sitael is proud to have contributed to this mission, by designing and producing most of its electronics.
