Abstract
The study of Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECRs) offers unique possibilities to probe the energies currently inaccessible by man-made accelerators. The last years have shed light on several characteristics of these particles, but - due to their extremely low flux - their origin, nature and acceleration mechanisms are still unclear. K-EUSO will be the detector to perform measurement of the flux of UHECR from space, covering and comparing the spectra of both northern and southern hemispheres. In this work we will discuss the science capabilities of the detector.
