Beyond molecules and atoms, how far down can we see below the wavelength of visible light? What is the smallest possible scale in the universe?

Whatever was the smallest distance in the universe, could you not half that, and then that, and so on... ?

Leptons, quarks: actually, there is a structure implied by the regularity of arrangement; in much the same way as one could be seen by the regularity of the periodic table, long before anyone could actually resolve molecules or atoms. They arrange themselves into 32 states per generation (of which there are 3, with recent hints of a possible 'sterile' 4th), indexed cleanly by 5 bits, 3 bits of which are associated with the strong force plus an as-yet-unseen force (whose charge would be proportional to baryon number minus lepton number); the other 2 bits to the electroweak force (after subtracting out the aforementioned force).

okay I finally undertand if we are able to shrink someone to the plack length he will not be bound by the quantum mechanics ir physical mechanics and will not be affected by general relativity

I was actually kind of under the impression that quarks and electrons were composed of Planck strings, which themselves are composed purely of energy, in conjunction with part of Einstein's E=MC2 theory. Because the theoretical strings would be so close to massless (certainly not measurable by any technology we currently have), that would sort of balance out the speed of light squared part of the equation. But that's just my idea, and I have no clue if it already exists in a much more comprehensive and/or complete form.

Con: Talking to fast, not enough time to think through what was said, not enough visual support (by animations/pictures), went into (sparse but good) detail on some topics.. but missing detail on other topics. Pro: good examples, good- pictures, good-- animations, woman interested in science+, pretty woman interested in science++, pretty woman interested in science and understands it (as far as one can guess)+++* Grade: German

measure the smallest distance in the universe? what would be between that distance? wouldn't it be more universe? therefore, is this even possible?

Isn't it amazing how chemists such as Lavosier, Dalton, Medeleev, and other male chauvinist pigs, (uh coughing), I mean other great chemists were able to predict the bonding structures of atoms, and now all of that can be verified with technology? Hey cutie! If you ever want to buy me a cup of coffee. I mean, uh, yeah that's pretty good girl. You don't mind if I say I love you do you? I LOVE YOU! Thank you for the awesome video. :-)

I've heard it said that a string in string theory is so small compared to a proton that it's like comparing the average oak tree to the size of the solar system. Some drunk in an alley told me that. Not really, I just can't remember where I read it.

Ameer Hamza (2 months ago)
+Gurpreet Kaur learn before you comment!!! I don't need to search Google because i already know! You need to search! Electron are not made you of anything. They can't be further divided. Rather they belong to lepton family. They are leptons. They are not made of them!!!

Good question, how small can we go? Let me explain. Electrons are mostly empty space. When an electron is in space, the volume of space it occupies gets dense. So all matter can be represented by the magnitude of "space density". Equal density space volumes repel each other and conversely, unequal space density volumes attract each other. And that's the basis of gravitational pull . For more go to: OurNewScience.com/research and examine the Universal Space Density Continuum graphic in the first paper. Two types of entities: 1. those that occupy space (matter) and 2. those that don't need space to exist (mind, thoughts, consciousness etc.). This model is complete, as it includes properties of entities unique to living cells (type 2). That's why I call it The Living Grand Unified Field Theory. Now you're ready for the second paper. The best way to understand the universe including "living cells". There's no such model in "science". My model leads to a supply of unlimited energy, because it's based on space-motion or Dynamika. God luck = higher probabilities for your happiness.

Atoms are a lie. You have to show me with cgi?? Because it isnt real. real science is observable and repeatable and any other science is JUNK science. Also "universe" is also a lie.

This stuff is and always has been a part of the SAME world we are in we just didn't have the instrument to see it with. You think your sooooo clever but really you can just see things with machines others built. You probably believe that it all just happened with a big explosion as well. Learned idiots!

what a coincidence would that be if the smallest distance we can measure is also the smallest distance there is, well, at some point we had to hit the end, right? but still, awsome!
