AMS LOADED INTO THE C5-M CARGO

August 25th, 2010

Today August 25th, at 16:01, the AMS-02 experiment has been successfully loaded into the the C5-M cargo. Nearly 40 tons of additional hardware will accompany the payload to KSC. Tomorrow, August 26th, at 7:00 am the C5-M will leave with a crew of 15 AF members and 35 AMS scientists from the Geneva airport, destination the KSC Shuttle landing strip.

GOODBYE CERN!

August 22nd, 2010

By midnight, august 20, the extensive AMS-02  test beam calibration has been completed. At 9 am on the following day the experiment has been extracted from the test beam area and transported into the structure which will host it while traveling to KSC. The scientists are now busy analyzing the data collected, in particular to accurately  perform  the  alignment of  the  tracker planes; the results confirm that with the  new tracker and magnet configuration the experiment exhibits  almost identical  measuring

THE LAST TEST BEAM @ CERN

August 17th, 2010

After integration has been completed AMS-02 has been transported to the CERN test beam to undergo systematic calibration using high energy protons, positrons, electrons and pions. The CERN accelerator is able to provide particles and antiparticles up to 400 GeV/c2 of energy. These particles are used to align the various parts of the tracking system to microns level accuracy and to test the particle identification capability of the experiment. Literally thousands of different test beam incident angles and positions have
