STS-134 PatchSTS-134 / ULF6 - AMS was launched on Monday May 16, 2011 at 8:56 AM Eastern

The AMS-02 experiment is a state-of-the-art particle physics detector that is constructed, tested and operated by an international team composed of 56 institutes from 16 countries and organized under United States Department of Energy (DOE) sponsorship. The JSC AMS project office oversaw the overall payload integration activities and ensured that the payload is safe and ready for launch on the Space Shuttle and continues to be safe since its deployment onto the ISS. The AMS Experiment uses the unique environment of space to advance knowledge of the universe and lead to the understanding of the universe’s origin. AMS was launched on Space Shuttle Endeavour on May 16, 2011.

Operations on the ISS began three days later, and AMS continues operations onboard the ISS today.
