I was watching a video where well known physicist Lisa Randall said that we still don't know whether space is continuous or discrete.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is, how do we find whether space is continuous or discrete?? What type of experiments are possible? Is it being done now??

I am thinking this may be connected to elementary particles. So, I am thinking like this: Space will be discrete if we ever found a particle that cannot be divided further. But then that particle also resides inside space, so how can we tell that SPACE is discrete??

How do we do it?
