On 08 September, the first batch of gamma photon data obtained by the Dark Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE - Wukong) was released by the National Space Science Data Center (NSSDC) and the Purple Mountain Observatory (PMO). Wukong's satellite platform and payload have been working normally. It has finished the full-sky scan 11 times and collected about 10.7 billion cases of high-energy cosmic rays, obtaining the most accurate measurement results of cosmic-ray electrons, protons and helium nuclei above the trillion electron volts energy region. The released data were recorded between 1 January 2016 and 31 December 2018, including 99,864 cases of gamma photon data and 1,096 records of related satellite status files. They can be accessed from the NSSDC and the PMO. More data will be released and NSSDC and PMO will carry out data analysis, and develop application technologies and tools.
