Any hints on the latest thoughts of the implications of the appearent lack of Plank scale "foaminess"? For example see: http://arxiv.org/abs/gr-qc/0503078

RE: quantum foam space. My Jan '04 paper "Solution to a problem with general relativity" CERN EXT-2004-007 (http://cdsweb.cern.ch/search.py?recid=706468&ln=en) states: "It was proposed that a mechanism of gravity should be developed to rigorously test all of the consequences of the physical fluid model for the fabric of space."

Hubble made the experimental error of saying H = velocity/distance which leads to cosmological problems today; the observable fact is time past, since distances can vary while the light comes to us. Individual galaxies are accelerating away in the space-time we observe in which distance is linked to time-past. We see and are affected by the past; the higher speeds refer both to earlier periods in the evolution of the universe and to greater distances.

This means:

(1) recession speed in big bang divided by time past we are seeing = constant acceleration,
(2) F=ma so constant outward force of big bang,
(3) Newton's 3rd law so inward force towards every point. The force/area or pressure acting inward thus goes as inverse square law with correct strength to within 1.65% if using consistent supernova-observation data published in Physical Review Letters and other peer-reviewed journals on the expansion rate and observed density (although the errors are about +/-20% in the data, not the 1.65% coincidence). See proof at: http://nigelcook0.tripod.com/

I've only had this published in Electronics World and on CERN Doc server, it was suppressed by PRL, CQG, etc. The popular model of general relativity, as causing a flat surface like a rubber sheet to curve is unhelpful since physical space fills volume, not surface area. This surface manifold model of space has stifled progress in physics.
