How can relativistic length contraction be measured at the quantum scale? Since a planck length by definition cannot be divided, how can something that is 1 planck length, traveling near the speed of light, contract with respect to an observer? In other words, how can an observer possibly measure the length of contraction?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
