Main Question or Discussion Point

hi, this is my first forum post, i hope it is in the correct category.
i was reading an article last month ...

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/09/110901142058.htm

now at these small distances that can be measured is the hindenburg principle of uncertainty being encroached upon?
thanks

sorry about the quantum foam in the title as this become prominant at sub-Plank lengths.

Er... "hindenburg principle"?

Are you expecting something to crash and burn?

yes i am expecting me to crash and burn on my first post!!!!

i should stop copy/pasting..
i meant say Heisenberg uncertainty principle!!!!!

The Heisenberg uncertainty principle does not say that you can't know a particle position exactly. It says that you can't know the particle's position exactly AND its momentum exactly, at the same time. So there is no encroaching here.
