Summary: Mistake cannot not be made but is needed for creative thinking that point the way for other. Even in in today world such mistake can be accommodate and are still important as ever. Mistake of scientific progress are not from haste, sloppiness or inexperience but are from thoughtful thinking and careful experiment from bold decision are the ideas that lead to major breakthrough. For academic research should also allows such mistake.
Opinion: In my opinion, I believe that such mistake should be allowed as with such mistake only would there be a new knowledge of what should or should not be done to make the same mistake. Even simple mistake could somehow maybe lead to some discovery.
