: When looking at an atom, what is in the space between the electrons and the nucleus? What is is in the space between atoms? Nothing? Something even smaller? Any theories or explanations will help.

It would be the same so called quantum foam said to be found at singularities in blackholes. This frothy cloud of EXTREMELY small "stuff" is a result of the uncertainty principle when applied to an empty vaccume. The size of this "tight" spot would be of planck-scale dimensions. So even electrons are collosal in size to the stuff that makes up this "foam".
