Physics

"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
Science is a systematized study of observations. A scientist critically analyses these observations and comes out with certain laws. For example, Tycho Brahe worked for twenty long years to make observations on planetary motions. It is from this huge reservoir of observations that Johannes Kepler formulated his three famous laws of planetary motion.
It is well known that to win over votes, politicians would make anything and everything possible even when they are least sure of the same and in Science the various natural phenomena can be explained in terms of some basic laws. So as 'Politics is the art of possible' similarly 'Science is the art of the soluble'
