I personally believe that it goes infinitely in both directions. For us we are in the middle, while scientist are always finding smaller 'materials' i.e. atoms made up of electrons etc. while those are made up of quarks. I think it could go way smaller, we just do not have the technology/ability to see it. Same in the other direction.
just my 2 cents.

In real life, the atom is a pure waveform there are in fact no balls or spheres to see under an electron microscope.

As has been noted the Bohr model for the atom was discarded long ago...
Electron cloud... this intuitive model provides a simplified way of visualizing an electron as a solution of the Schrödinger equation. In the electron cloud analogy, the probability density of an electron, or wavefunction, is described as a small cloud moving around the atomic or molecular nucleus...

Hydrogen has one proton, one electron. The building block of the universe. Hydrogen plus Oxygen = water.
Oxygen causes rust, or generates oxidization.
Hydrogen cause water, or generates water.
Earth, with it's moon, is unique in that is has only one, and the only moon
in the universe that we know of that is not named by science.
The Earth and the single moon, make up the hydrogen atom, therefore earth is mostly water and oxygen.
Humans, are mostly water and oxygen, and therefore made up from the element of earth.
