Could have alternatively called this - Summary of the Universe
What are we if not sum of empty spaces...and that's why the 'hopeless emptiness' :p
An atom is more than 99% empty space, and the protons and neutrons make up a very small amount of the volume of an atom. Additionally, the electrons are much smaller in proportion to the nucleons (protons and neutrons) than we have depicted. The nucleons are actually about 1800 times the size of an electron.
