The AMS detector heads for the International Space Station- UPDATE

STS-134 launch has been shifted again to a new “no earlier than” date: May 16th at 8:56 a.m. EDT.

The AMS particle detector will take off on 29 April 2011 at 21.47 CEST onboard the very last mission of the space Shuttle Endeavour. AMS, the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, will then be installed on the International Space Station from where it will explore the Universe for a period of over 10 years. AMS will address some of the most exciting mysteries of modern physics, looking for antimatter and dark matter in space, phenomena that have remained elusive up to now.
