One of the most anticipated films from Netflix in 2021, red alert, has just won the first image published via streaming. With Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the cast makes their first appearances in official footage. Check it out below:

Together with the picture, the film finally got a release date: The action will now debut in the streaming catalog on November 12th. “You have been warned,” wrote Netflix at the time of the ad.

Although devoid of plot details or other information in general, The Rock commented in the platform’s tweet that red alert is “Netflix’s greatest movie of all time”. It was recently revealed that the feature has a total budget of $ 200 million, which is even higher than the ceiling for streaming production the Irish people, by Martin Scorsese, who, in addition to a strong cast, has invested heavily in the visual effects that have rejuvenated and aged the actors on screen.

In the plot, Dwayne Johnson plays an FBI agent looking for an art thief, played by Gal Gadot, and a cheater, played by Ryan Reynolds. Now that the release date is finally set, it shouldn’t be long before Netflix releases the first trailer.

who commands red alert is comedy director Rawson Marshall Thurber Family of things and with the whole ball. The filmmaker also signs the script and becomes the project’s producer alongside The Rock.

Originally, Universal Pictures was supposed to be released in theaters. red alert was one of the titles hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, the distribution rights of which were sold to Netflix. The film is part of the streaming project to publish an exclusive film in the catalog every week. See the full list here.

Is it possible to measure the information stored in the universe? For this physicist, yes!

Published

By

The universe is very strange when we stop thinking about some of the most basic principles of physics, like the uncertainty of the state of particles until we observe them, or gravity, which is a distortion of space-time. It is therefore not surprising that some “crazy” hypotheses published by scientists make sense. And the new idea that information is the fifth state of matter is such a case.

A physicist named Melvin Vopson of the University of Portsmouth in the UK decided to quantify information by estimating how much information is stored in a single elementary particle such as an electron and multiplying the result by the estimated number of particles in the observable universe. Just from someone who thinks about doing something like that is impressive, even more so, moving the idea forward.

Scientists have long suspected a link between information and the physical universe, using various experiments and paradoxes to study how information can be encoded in physical matter. And when it comes to information in that context, it’s kind bit stored in particles and determine their properties such as spin, mass and electrical charge. In fact, some ideas link the entropy of a system to information from its particles.

We can also think of information as reducing uncertainty, since with particles we cannot determine many things like velocity (or momentum) and position at the same time. We cannot say Schrödinger’s cat is alive or dead until the box is opened, but once the box is opened it creates information and reduces uncertainty. In another analogy, text in a message reduces uncertainty about what to report; the more text (information), the less uncertainty.

These ideas are rooted in information theory proposed by Claude Shannon in 1948. In this hypothesis (somewhat complex, but important to understand information as a physical state) the entropy of a random variable is the average level of “information”, “surprise”. ”Or“ Uncertainty ”about the possible outcomes of the variable. The classic example is a heads or tails game. When we toss the coin (random variable) we know that there will be a result that can be interpreted as small information.

If the result is expensive, it has value to the, while the crown has a value of 1 – p. If there is no reason to expect a certain result, the surprise is worth it p = 1/2. In this case, regardless of the result, we have an entropy of one bit. But if the coin is “addicting” and you already know the outcome, it is worth it p = 0 or p = 1, and the entropy is zero bits because there is no uncertainty, no freedom of choice, no information has been added to the system.

If you are confused, calm down, because entropy is not an easy subject in any of its “strands”. Thermodynamic entropy (older than information theory) was introduced to characterize the degree of disorder in a system. According to Shannon, the information entropy relates to the uncertainty of the probability distribution. In the case of probabilistic uncertainty, the possible states and the probability distribution for them are known, but it is not possible to determine with such certainty what will occur. The more “spread out” the probability distribution, the more uncertainty it reflects.

Well, this whole tour of the entropy of information just shows how quantum systems can carry those “bits” that theoretical physicists call information. But back to Vopson’s work, the information entropy calculations were applied to the mass, charge, and spin of protons, neutrons, quarks, and electrons to get their estimate of how much information they carry. Then, using estimates of how many of these particles exist in the universe, he came up with an impressive (but not quite) number: about 6, followed by 80 zeros, in bits of information.

A comparison that shows how scientists understood in the 1980s that the three valence quarks of a proton (red, green, blue) only make up a fraction of the proton’s total spin. Recent measurements have shown that gluons (yellow spirals) contribute just as much or perhaps even more than quarks. The spin is considered to be one of the pieces of information stored in a particle (Image: Reproduction / National Brookhaven Laboratory)

This number is lower than previous estimates, but there is a reason for it. It’s just that Vopson decided to limit his calculations to the observable parts of matter, thereby excluding antiparticles and things like light bosons and very short-lived quarks that decay into other particles in a split second. Because such particles do not store any information, they only transmit it (in the case of bosons) or because they hold so little that an observation is only possible through artificially created experimental conditions (in the case of unstable quarks). “Therefore, their participation in the observable universe is negligible and their ability to record information, extrapolated, is also negligible,” wrote the physicist.

Like some other “crazy” (but reasonable) hypotheses, Vopson’s work is based on the principle that information is physical and is recorded by physical systems, “and all physical systems can record information,” he said. He had already suggested that information could be a fifth physical state alongside solid, liquid, gas, and plasma, and even suggested that information could be dark matter.

The search was published in AIP Advances.
