Interesting article, thanks.
As the article says, there's still much work to be done and still much that is not understood.
Can someone here please complete the theory of quantum gravity? I'd like this resolved soon, please. :wink:

I've correctly completed the theory of quantum gravity years ago. It was a subset of my Theory Of Everything. I'd post it here, but my dog at my notes. :wink:
You'd be surprised at how much everything depends upon the existance of blue orangutans.

The last paragraph of the article speaks well to possible explanations for the phenomenon within discrete theory:
One is that time and space might vary together at the Planck scale, keeping beams of starlight in their original formation. The other is that the wobbles might reflect the Planck length squared - about 10-60 metres [squared] - making the smearing undetectably small.
