The Balloon-Born Experiment with a Superconducting Spectrometer (BESS) has measured cosmic-ray spectra blow 1 TeV and searched for antiparticle of novel cosmic origin. The BESS program is extended to long duration balloon (LDB) flights in Antarctica (BESS-Polar) aiming at unprecedented sensitivity to search for primordial antiparticles. This report describes recent results from BESS and the progress in the BESS-Polar program.
