“Politics is the art of the possible”. Similarly, “Science is the art of the soluble”. Explain this

Question 

“Politics is the art of the possible”. Similarly, “Science is the art of the soluble”. Explain this beautiful aphorism on the nature and practice of science.

Solution 

Politicians make everything possible to win votes. And science is a systematized study of observation. Researchers and scientist study these observations and then work out certain laws from them. In this universe, there are several natural phenomena taking place and all of them can be described in terms of some basic laws. For example, F = mg is valid for you and me and also for a star. Thus, we see in science that different phenomena are related, they are soluble and can be clarified with the same or similar law. This continues to justify that science is the art of the soluble just as politics is the art of the possible.
