Pamala project

PAMALA Project

  • The PAMELA experiment represents one of the most important steps of an extensive research program dedicated to the study of the nuclear and isotopic components of cosmic rays, and to antimatter detection in space.

  • The whole program is carried out by the WiZard collaboration together with Russian partners, and makes use of balloon-borne, satellite and Space Station missions.

  • PAMELA is a part of the Russian-Italian Mission (RIM) research program. The first step (RIM-0.1 and RIM-0.2) were the SilEye 1-2 experiments, performed on board of the Russian MIR station. The SilEye main detectors consisted of silicon sensors able to study the radiation environment inside the MIR and the nature of particles producing the "light flashes" seen by astronauts in darkness conditions.

Nina involvement

The RIM-1 mission is currently studying SEP particles and low energy, solar and galactic cosmic rays. The mission is organized in two steps: the first experiment NINA, making use of a 32 silicon detector planes telescope, has flown as a "piggy back" of the Resurs 01 n.4 Russian satellite in the years 1998-1999, and the second experiment, NINA-2 similar to NINA, that has been put in orbit in July 2000 on board of the Italian satellite MITA.The RIM-2 mission is PAMELA.

PAMELA is a part of the Russian-Italian Mission (RIM) research program. The first step (RIM-0.1 and RIM-0.2) were the SilEye 1-2 experiments, performed on board of the Russian MIR station.
