Abstract
The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) is a general-purpose high-energy particle physics detector. It was installed on the International Space Station (ISS) in May 2011 to conduct a unique long-duration mission of fundamental physics research in space. Precision measurements by the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station of the primary cosmic-ray particles and nuclei fluxes and their ratios will be presented.
