Question Is it only me, or does the solar system and the atoms seem similar?

What I mean is like the solar system has planets revolving around a star and in atoms there are electrons revloving around protons and neutrons.

This ought to explain what's going on in an atom:


The solar system and the atom are two different things.

It's not just you. This similarity has been known for decades.

you could even imagine it farther and see our universe as a part of the make up of a neutron or proton spinning around its atom and so on and so on now that's mind blowingly small quantum mechanics to the power 10
 
Difference between a solar system is planets have stuff between them and any orbit is possible.
Atoms have nothing between orbits and orbits are set in specific locations, quantum leap only.
Boiled down to it's essence the entire universe is mostly that (void) space and about .01% or less of everything else.

Infinite regression of a universe is quite possible.
A galaxy of universes just 1 galaxy in a galaxy of universe universes ETC
If more than 1 universe exists nature will have grander structures like that.
