    If Hydrogen has 1 electron it can only have 1 outer shell (or orbital) as an electron cannot by split across shells. In general, the first shell can hold 2 electrons, the second can hold 8. Consequently, hydrogen only has 1 outer shell as it has less than 2 electrons so it does not need another shell.
