Several space misions during the last decade on the energetic particles in space have contributed to the enormous progress in the observational data and their interpretations on the galactic cosmic rays. These include Anuradha mission aboard Spacelab-3 that gave for the first time results on the charged states of galactic cosmic ray heavy ions the LDEF experiment on the ultraheavy cosmic ray nuclei which had a spectacular recovery leading to enormous quantity of high quality data collected in the large detector in a 5-year exposure in space, the ISEE-3 mission on the isotopic composition which gave high quality isotopic data on iron nuclei, the Heavy Ions in Space (HIIS) mission and the High Energy Isotope Spectrometer Telescope as well as ONR-604 experiment on isotopic composition which yielded several new results. The penetration studies into the magnetosphere by cosmic ray heavy ions measured by S 81-1 and CRRES experiment gave new insight into our understanding of these aspects "Galactic Cosmic Ray Heavy Ions" presents fresh observational data and implications, providing new understanding of the present day problems, and presents clues to future directions of progress.
