Planck length

Even in existing particle physics it is generally assumed that the traditional simple continuum description of space must break down at least below about the Planck length Sqrt[ \[HBar] G/c^3] 2 × 10^-35 meters—since at this scale dimensional analysis suggests that quantum effects should be comparable in magnitude to gravitational ones.
