But the testing failed. Because the scientists could not reach the place where they wanted to reach.
Having achieved mastery in this task, K Sivan was given the responsibility of launching GSLV with success. This achievement led to K Sivan being recognized as the Rocket Man of ISRO.

PM Modi declared that the place where Chandrayaan-3’s moon lander made contact with the surface will receive the name ‘Shiv Shakti’.

 This was a proud moment for all indians. Chandrayaan 3 mission has only three objectives. First, to demonstrate the capability of soft-landing on the Moon. The second objective is to demonstrate the rover Vikram’s ability to walk on the Moon. Third, ISRO aims to conduct in-situ scientific experiments.
