Assume String Theory is headed in the right direction, can one understand electron (or any Standard Model particle spin for that matter) spin roughly in terms of some small spinning string? If so, would you consider that a selling point of the theory as it provides an explanation for intrinsic particle spin?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Do spinors come out of the classical starting point for String Theory; a moving, vibrating, and rotating string, or do we get spinors once the classical string is quantized?

Thanks for any help!
