The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer is a particle physics experiment accurately measuring cosmic ray fluxes, in the range 1 GV to 2 TV. AMS has been installed on the International Space Station on May 19 2011, and since then is continuously collecting new data. The precise measurement of the main and of the rare components of the cosmic ray flux, opens a new window into the high energy processes happening in our galaxy. These measurements allow to better understand the origin, the acceleration and the propagation of the cosmic rays in our galaxy. This improved knowledge, will allow to recognise potential anomalies in the cosmic rays rare components and possibly link them to new Physics happening in our galaxy. I will present the most recent AMS measurement and I will discuss their implications and possible future outcomes. I will conclude discussing additional measurements on ground that may concur in defining a better picture about AMS observed anomalies.
