Abstract

Inspired by a construction of Wigner we calculate the quantum relativistic limitations of measuring the metric tensor of a certain space-time. Our suggestion is that the result is an estimate for fluctuations of gab whose rigorous determination will be a subject of a future relativistic quantum gravity.
