Rod Sterling defined science fiction as the impossible made probable. How is this definition different from the approach used by scientists to conduct scientific inquiry?

Scientists start with what is probable and make it certain! Scientists make probable inferences based on background theory, etc. and then back it up with rigorous experimentation. Science fiction writers bring up pure fantasies, and then try to create a probable mechanism for their coming to fruition.
