WHOA! Science Facts You Didn’t Know Were Real

Minus The Empty Space In Our Atoms, Humanity Could Into The Volume Of A Sugar Cube

As crazy as it may sound, atoms which make up matter contain a huge amount of empty space. In the center, each atom has a nucleus that is orbited by electrons, kind of like a miniature solar system. Just as there’s a huge amount of empty space between the sun and planets, atoms too contain huge voids between their nucleus and electrons. If you were to remove all that empty space from every atom in every human being on Earth, you could fit all of us into the volume of a single sugar cube.
