Abstract

Some results of studies of cosmic rays obtained during the NUCLEON space experiment in 2015–2017 are presented. This experiment was intended for direct measurements of the energy spectra and chemical composition of cosmic rays (Z = 1−30) in the energy range 2–500 TeV. Results presented include energy spectra for various abundant nuclei measured using the new Kinematic Lightweight Energy Meter (KLEM). The primary energies are established using the spatial densities of secondary particles produced in inelastic interactions with a carbon target.
