PAMELA - an experiment searching for dark matter with cosmic antiparticles (35'+5')
 
The PAMELA satellite experiment was launched into low earth orbit on June 
15th 2006 for a 3 year mission. The 
combination of a permanent magnet silicon strip spectrometer, and a silicon-
tungsten imaging calorimeter allows 
precision studies of the charged cosmic radiation to be conducted over a wide 
energy range (~100 MeV - ~200 GeV) 
with high statistics. The primary scientific goal is the measurement of 
antiparticle energy spectra, allowing a search 
for exotic sources such as dark matter particle annihilations. The status of the 
PAMELA experiment will be reviewed 
with a particular focus on results concerning antiprotons and positrons.
