Are atoms the smallest thing in the world?

    Not quite.  There are subatomic particles that are even smaller than the actual atom.  Most of the studies in this field were done by Ernest Rutherford, a scientist from New Zealand.  Some things he discovered include the nucleus of the cell, neutrons, protons and quark neutrinos.  Studies in physics are ongoing and continue to find more parts of the atom.

    It depends on what form of physics you believe in. There is the string theory, which is way to complicated to go into here. See the 1st link for a basic explanation. Quarks and Leptons are smaller than atoms and are a component of atoms. You can read more about them on the 2nd link.
