Abstract
The Dark Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE) is a satellite-borne,calorimetric type, high-energy-resolution space cosmic ray and gamma-ray detector. It operates stably in space for more than three years since its launch in December, 2015. Precise measurements of the total electron plus positron spectrum and the proton spectrum in wide energy ranges have been obtained, which are expected to shed new light on our understanding of the cosmic ray origin and the nature of dark matter particles. The current status of the mission and its latest physical results will be presented.
