ABSTRACT : Planck’s quantum proposal has resolved the ultraviolet catastrophe in the black body radiation. String/M theory has solved the similar UV problem in quantum gravity. Especially, M-theory is purely quantum in the sense that both electric and magnetic strength is of order one. I would like to illustrate some current issues and future challenges in this subject.
