The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer(AMS) is a Particle Physics detector operating continuously on the International Space Station since May 2011. The AMS is capable of accurately measuring the principal and rarest cosmic rays charged component from rigidity 0.1 GV to several TV. Over the last seven years, the AMS collected more than 100 billion of cosmic ray events, thus allowing accurately studying the anti-matter components as positrons anti-protons and anti-deuterons. The AMS is also capable of measuring the nuclei component up to Iron. Thanks to large acceptance and long duration, AMS data allow studying nuclei fluxes with unprecedented accuracy. This high accuracy data allow putting new constraints on the cosmic rays propagation model. Time-dependent flux of the low energy cosmic rays show correlations with the activity of the sun. We will review the main and most recent AMS results and its future perspectives.
