Chandrayaan-3 has gone through several tests for checking any risks before the launch ceremony and has been validated by the officials to ensure a successful mission ahead. All the mistakes that had occurred during the previous mission have been taken into consideration and steps have been taken to refrain from repeating the same errors.
