Of course, it does not mean that the description is accurate. But Loop Quantum Gravity describes the very nature of space as made up of loops, something like strings, essentially particles that weave together to make space. So space has fundamental atoms or particles. As a result the quantum uncertainty principle applies to space itself and in LQG that principle is responsible for eliminating the GR singularity attributed to the Big Bang.

SST- super string theory assumes that space exists as a flat bacground in which strings exist.

If I remember correctly, too lazy to check, that was my very first response to your posts.
