“Quantum Foam” is an artist’s visualization of a concept from Quantum Mechanics and String Theory. At very small length scales and in very high vacuum, space time is believed to be very active, full of short-lived virtual particles that spontaneously appear and disappear. the shape of the universe may also be very complex and convoluted at these length scales like a writhing self-similar foam.
