Can't only two electrons be in each orbital? If so, why is that?

Each one shell can contain just a settled number of electrons: The first shell can hold up to two electrons, the second shell can hold up to eight (2 + 6) electrons, the third shell can hold up to 18 (2 + 6 + 10) etc. The general equation is that the nth shell can on a fundamental level hold up to 2n2 electrons.
