‘RoboCop Actress’ Nancy Allen is planning to release a book about her memoirs
Best known for her roles in important De Palma films such as Carrie, Blowout, Dressed to Kill and the hyper famous RoboCop film saga, retired actress Nancy Allen is still a public figure that could have a come back to the screens sooner than what we may think.
Nancy Allen is well known in the SCI FI fan groups for her recurring portrayal of officer Anne Lewis in the three consecutive films of the saga (1987, 1990 and 1992), opposed to Peter Weller and Robert John Burke in them.
Officer Anne Lewis, RoboCop’s dedicated partner, fills a spot in the iconic list of SCI FI and action heroines from the 80’s, 90’s, that brought ‘girl power’ to the screen such as Lt. Ripley, (Sigourney Weaver, Alien 1979), Sarah Connor (Terminator, 1984), and opened way in Hollywood for more female action leads in forth coming years.
So, for the RoboCop fans, we have exciting news. On April 14, 2022 Nancy agreed to be live-interviewed by writer Eva Rojano on her RoboCop fan fiction dedicated Facebook page “RoboCop Enhanced Reality” revealing that although she has a full schedule working as an executive director for the American organization WeSpark, she is not entirely dismissing the idea to return to the big or small screen, if a good script/project is presented to her.
Eva Rojano who is also known in the RoboCop fan groups for her ongoing RoboCop fanfiction series and for creating original characters for both screenwriter and producer Edward Neumeier and Nancy Allen in her bestselling novels, was in charge of bringing the news to us.
Mrs. Allen was live on Facebook on a zoom stream for almost an hour answering questions from active viewers and letting us know that she is up to adapt to modern times and TV on demand systems such as Netflix or Disney +. She also revealed she’s proud of having worked in France, filming “Les Patriots” back in 1994 and she saluted her French fans on screen.
Finally, the long-loved officer Lewis revealed to us she is working on writing her memoirs! Although there is no release date for her autobiography, she promised to keep us posted about the plans to release a book that will tell the real story of Nancy, written by herself. Perhaps a biopic can come after. Everything can happen these days.

quantum wormholes United Kingdom has potentially figured out
Vice reports that a physicist working at the University of Bristol in the UK has potentially discovered quantum wormholes. Researcher Hatim Salih has proposed an experiment that makes a type of teleportation called “counter-transportation” realistically feasible. However, this isn’t exactly the Star Trek transporter many sci-fi fans have dreamed of over the years. Here’s everything you need to know about Salih’s quantum wormhole experiment.
Salih’s quantum wormhole is a huge scientific breakthrough.
The general theory of relativity of the famous scientist Albert Einstein affirms that hypothetical “bridges” are possible between two points in space-time. However, since 1935, when Einstein presented his theory, the existence of wormholes has been purely hypothetical. However, Salih’s experiment paves the potential way to achieve the longstanding goal of traversing a rift in space-time.
Counterportation comes from “counterfactual” and “transportation” and while similar to teleportation, the two terms are not synonymous. “Counterportation gives you the end goal of recreating an object in space,” Salih said. “[B] but we can make sure nothing happened.”
Although unfortunately, for Salih to achieve true counterportation, they’ll have to wait a few years. The quantum computers necessary to perform the task don’t exist yet in 2023. “If counterportation is to be realized, an entirely new type of quantum computer has to be built,” Salih said. However, development is underway, and Salih hopes to complete it in three to four years.
Wormholes are a classic trope of science fiction in popular media, if only because they provide such a handy futuristic plot device to avoid the issue of violating relativity with faster-than-light travel. In reality, they are purely theoretical. Unlike black holes—also once thought to be purely theoretical—no evidence for an actual wormhole has ever been found, although they are fascinating from an abstract theoretical physics perceptive. You might be forgiven for thinking that undiscovered status had changed if you only read the headlines this week announcing that physicists had used a quantum computer to make a wormhole, reporting on a new paper published in Nature.
Let’s set the record straight right away: This isn’t a bona fide traversable wormhole—i.e., a bridge between two regions of spacetime connecting the mouth of one black hole to another, through which a physical object can pass—in any real, physical sense. “There’s a difference between something being possible in principle and possible in reality,” co-author Joseph Lykken of Fermilab said during a media briefing this week. “So don’t hold your breath about sending your dog through a wormhole.” But it’s still a pretty clever, nifty experiment in its own right that provides a tantalizing proof of principle to the kinds of quantum-scale physics experiments that might be possible as quantum computers continue to improve.
“It’s not the real thing; it’s not even close to the real thing; it’s barely even a simulation of something-not-close-to-the-real-thing,” physicist Matt Strassler wrote on his blog. “Could this method lead to a simulation of a real wormhole someday? Maybe in the distant future. Could it lead to making a real wormhole? Never. Don’t get me wrong. What they did is pretty cool! But the hype in the press?
The success of this experiment could change the field of physics forever.
Additionally, Salih posits that this work is tantamount to the particle acceleration work at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN). “This work will be in the spirit of the multi-billion ventures that exist to witness new physical phenomena,” Salih said. “[…] But at a fraction of the resources.”
The ultimate goal of the quantum wormhole experiment is to “explore fundamental questions about the universe,” Salih says. And if successful, the experiment could allow scientists to research “higher dimensions.”
