    Someone, enlighten me:

    Protons and neutrons consist of thre quarks each.
    Does string theory tell us that each quark is a string of its own?

    AIUI there are several different string theories, but at least some of them do say exactly that, yes.

    Thank you. Does every one agree?

    Anaother question of the same gnegre:

    Are electrons strings too?
    Is it only in the 'classical' theory where electrons are considered being a pointlike particle?
