Brad, First, I'll refresh your memory with some basic information on the atomic structure. I'm sure you know all of this. - all atoms have positive particles (protons) and negative particles (electrons). - protons do not leave the nucleus of the atom. Therefore, an atom and thus all matter is mostly empty space. It's is unknown what it is occupying the empty space. So, we deal with the information we have.

: I was just wondering what is it that is in the space between electrons and the nucleus of an atom?
