Quantum Jitters?

  1. Quantum Jitters in empty space!!!! Quantum field theory!

    In an empty volume of space is it true that there are particles being spontaneously created and annihilated with their anti-particles? If so wouldn't that result in empty space always flashing with gamma rays making it not apparently empty?
