Figar - I forgot to add that the electron also spends some time near the nucleus

See http://www.op.net/~andydunn/hydrogen.html

for pictures of the electron distributions of the Hydrogen atom in various states. Electron capture requires a change of state though.

zc is reffering to http://library.thinkquest.org/3471/radiation_types_body.html

ZC re - "but thats not what he asked. He asked why they don't enter the nucleus. You thought they didn't. They do. - Never try to read my mind. You have no clue what I know or don't know. I know far too well of the physics. In fact when I was working on calibrating (ie measuring the quntumn efficiency of) CCD's which detected x-rays we used radioactive materials.

You've got a lot to learn about explaining physics to others.

He wanted to know why, if the negative electrons are attracted to the positive nucleus why they don't all fall into the nucleus.

i.e. - How can there be stable atoms!

The explaination you gave would not tell the questioned what he wanted to know. Perhaps he may alos have been interested in yout suplemental comment. You should have simply left mine alone. But I don't see that you have that capability.
