    So I've been perusing the following Wiki article; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_particle.

    Which also involves; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_foam.

    And; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawking_radiation.

    The theoretical basis for virtual particle's seem's pretty solid. Is there any observational evidence? Are they (virtual particle's) a 99%+ thing, or still a little bit of a maybe?


    I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around.
    Lucky me. Lucky mud.

    It would seem to be a 99%+ thing. Thank's for the answer.
