The bonds between atoms can stretch a bit and the angles can twist a bit. But the most important thing for elastic materials like rubber is that the long thin molecules can straighten out.

It's a name for the bit of space between the nuclei of two atoms where the electron density is higher. It's also what holds the atoms together to make molecules.
