Is there a tangible thing called ‘information’?

Hi,

I’m no scientist but I’m very interested in big questions. The one that I’m currently pondering is the origin of life. From what I’ve read already scientists seem to hide behind a rather vague and non-descript reference to the role of information. But what is information? In the way scientists refer to it, it is not simply something that can be interpreted by our brains. Is there a tangible thing called information? And if so what is it? And does it have mass? (the last question I need to know for a science fiction novel I’m writing).

Thanks,
Rob

How potent is stomach acid?

How potent is stomach acid? If it’s really acidic, why doesn’t it burn through your stomach and intestines? And why doesn’t it burn, say, the floor, if you throw up? What CAN stomach acid burn through? Can it be compared with any other acid? How is it produced?
