Talk title: Recent progresses of the Dark Matter Particle Explorer

The DArk Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE) is a satellite-borne, calorimetric type, high-energy-resolution space cosmic ray and gamma-ray detector. It was launched in December 2015 and has been stably operating for 6.5 years. Its three major scientific objectives are dark matter indirect detection, cosmic ray physics and gamma-ray astronomy. Precise measurements of the all-electron, proton, and Helium spectra in wide energy ranges and sensitive searches of monochromatic gamma rays have been obtained, shedding new light on the research of cosmic ray physics and constraining the properties of particle dark matter. The operation status of the mission and recent physical results will be introduced.
