Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

When you cool a container with air and the volume reduces by half, the space that was between the gas molecules reduces/shrinks.

This is because the volume is reduced thus has to hold more air molecules in the same space.

Thus, the spaces between the gas molecules shrink

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
