On the divisibility of space/time

Taken from Wikipedia concerning the divisibility of space/time:

Physical space is often regarded as infinitely divisible: it is thought that any region in space, no matter how small, could be further split. Similarly, time is infinitely divisible.

However, the pioneering work of Max Planck (1858-1947) in the field of quantum physics suggests that there is, in fact, a minimum distance (now called the Planck length[...]) and therefore a minimum time interval (the amount of time which light takes to traverse that distance in a vacuum[...]) smaller than which meaningful measurement is impossible.

Hope this info proves helpful.

Yours in Doubt,
