The smallest unit of matter is an atom. It’s also where things start to get really weird. More than 99.99% of the atom’s mass is the nucleus. If the nucleus were the size of a car, all the nothingness around the atom would be about the size of the State of Utah, a place where you can’t get a proper pint. Inside all that empty nothingness, a electron would be found somewhere – about the size of a pea.

On the seventh day, God rested while he waited for the simulation to boot up, hoping he wouldn’t see a BSOD.
Perhaps the best proof that we’re in a simulation might be the weirdness of quantum mechanics, things like quantum entanglement. Scientists cannot explain why two particles separated by any distance can communicate without any problem. It’s this strange quantum world that investors continue to throw money at.
A Quantum Analogy
Ladies, quantum computing is like that really hot unemployed “musician” who …
