It's been almost a month since the ISRO's Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) was put into orbit. Though it doesn't carry much scientific payload, the one most talked about is the methane sensor, which even MAVEN doesn't have. So my questions are:
- Is it capable of positively confirming or denying the presence of methane?
- What has the sensor found up till now? Has it confirmed any presence of methane on Mars?
- If not, when can we except to hear some news?
