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 more than five 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 have been obtained, shedding new light on the research of cosmic ray physics and dark matter properties. We will also present the current status of the mission and its recent physical results.
