Amount of information in visible universe quantified in new research. Estimate measures information encoded in particles, opens door to practical experiments. Researchers have long suspected a connection between information and the physical universe, with various paradoxes and thought experiments used to explore how or why information could be encoded in physical matter. The digital age

Researchers at Jülich have detected string-like structures made of skyrmions. Above, simulated models of six skyrmions at different magnetic field strengths; below, transmission electron microscope images of such structures observed in a thin film.
