After more than 5 years in space the analysis of about 100 billions of collected cosmic rays AMS results are providing most precise measurements of cosmic ray composition and fluxes up to the multi TeV range, including the rare positron and antiproton component. A number of new and unexpected features have been identified. We discuss these results, their implications and future perspectives.
