    Plank’s constant is very, very, very small…but if the fundamental building blocks are smaller than pixels or foam then they can’t be measured directly of indirectly, as of yet. So, the difraction through space-time is still a viable experimental postulate. I love the way these scientists designed their experiment and the fact that these three photons are milliseconds apart is not immaterial. Space-time may appear smooth and continuous to us on a macro scale butmay ber truly quantized at an infinitesimally small scale we can’t detect as of yet. Beautiful.
