    Marvel's newest addition to its cinematic universe, Ant-Man, hides a disturbing secret in its physics. In saving his loved ones from utter destruction, does Ant-Man actually destroy us all, taking the world as we know it with him? I think we've just uncovered the truth that Ant-Man is in fact Marvel's deadliest hero!

              There is no empty space around a nucleus, as in Bohr's superseded model. The electrons make up a tiny proportion of the mass of an atom, while the nucleus makes up the rest. The nucleus makes up a tiny proportion of the space occupied by an atom, while the electrons make up the rest. 
              According to quantum electrodynamics, the space is filled by an electron field around the nucleus which neutralizes its charge and fills the space defining the atom size.

                Atoms are not mostly empty space because there is no such thing as purely empty space. Rather, space is filled with a wide variety of particles and fields. Sucking all the particles and fields out of a certain volume won't make the space completely empty because new particles will still flash into existence due to vacuum energy.

                  You need to update this video. Atoms are NOT mostly empty space. That is a myth. Do more research.

                        4:12 Quantum Physics states, that most of the mass comes from the 'empty' space around an atom. It has to do with the Quantum field.

                              The thanus theory can still work with this information. If he goes in his double Cs, then shrink down to atomic size. It would cause a black hole! Definutely killing thanos. Sure it would destroy humanity, but it would certainly work! But hey, thats just a theory. A film theory!

                              Just make sure he doesn't fart tho. Thanos is 250,000 tomes stronger than a human, so his fart would definately 'blow him away' 😂😂😂😂 #BADJOKES4LIFE

                                                        Love it, only there is no way to shrink the space between the electrons and the protons of an atom past the point that they touch each other, and certainly not past the quarks within them. Narrowing the space to touching would be catastrophic. Let's not even get into the science of how much energy it would take to push those electrons in towards the protons. There is a reason it's so hard to split an atom, well that same strong nuclear force that holds electrons in place would push back, preventing the shrinking, and even if you could, that would fundamentally change the chemistry of the molecules those atoms form into. The molecules would most likely become unstable and he would incinerate long before he could shrink to black hole density. Again no way to make the space between atoms smaller in diameter than the very quarks within them without destroying that atom, turning it into some kind of plasma or a BEC. Lastly the very notion of atoms, at maximum shrinkage, would never be able to exist at the quantum level. There is a max shrinkage here and it’s not smaller than the smallest things inside the protons that make it up. Just doesn’t make since.
