Reading the SpaceFlightNow post[^], and others, I'm always awestruck (emphasis on "awe") on how much testing, retesting, tweaking, re-retesting, etc., goes into all of the various bits and pieces.

Quote:
“We’re going to test its navigation capabilities, we’re going to test avionics, telemetry, we’re going to test the reaction control system, its ability to dock, its ability to re-enter,” said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine.


And that's just the high level bits (probably leaving out a bunch of stuff too.)

This stuff puts my unit tests (when I even have them) not to shame, but, well, into perspective.
