This question already has an answer here:

I would imagine there is no limit to how small space can get. Is this correct? I am aware of planck's constant, but cannot objects be closer than Planck's constant is short?

Perhaps this question is simpler than I am making it to be. Regardless, an answer is appreciated.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


I guess you are talking about the Planck lebgth, not the planck-constant.

But this is no minimum distance either. Its just the minimum space in which action can be defined. Its the distance, which is traveled trough by light in one planck second.

But that does not mean it is the smallest distance to exist.
