She stated that the parameters of space are enormous and complicated. “There will always be a small non-zero probability that something will go wrong, and we cannot eliminate that,” he said, adding, “but I’m confident we’ll make it this time.” A great deal of planning has gone into it, and Chandrayaan-3 has the best chance of succeeding
