Summary
General relativity and quantum theory have not been merged into a consistent theory of quantum gravity yet. Unfortunately, to date, there are no experiments available that may disclose parts of the unified theory. Nevertheless, mathematics is already in a position to provide us with rigorous statements on how quantum gravity may look like.
