Physics Capsule is creating a dynamic online book explaining academic physics to everyone.

Physics is all around us, driving our world, developing our understanding of nature, improving society, and kicking all our imaginations into gear. Yet few have access to read physics the way most academics do; there are places to learn popular physics and there are places offering overly complicated mathematical treatments, but there is no good middle ground. As a result, the public almost never tastes physics the way physicists do.

With Physics Capsule we want to strike a balance. We want to explain physics in a way most people would understand—but most people are not the same: some know a lot of mathematics while others are turned off by it. What is needed, therefore, is a compendium of articles that can be read both verbally and mathematically, depending on your inclination, so it makes sense either way without giving up the precision mathematics brings, the beautiful complexity words bring, and the drive to want to our world that physics embodies.

Physics Capsule is not a collection of facts or a wiki of articles. These are handcrafted pages that explain physics academically and are meant to educate anyone who is even remotely interested in the field while neither sacrificing simplicity for maths nor maths for popular writing. And, at the end of the day, this is our passion and we want to share it with the world for our mutual benefit.

Curiosity bots can request one article per month. You get your name on our roster and a personal, handwritten letter from us thanking you for becoming a patron.
Propulsion bot
$7 or more per month
Propulsion bots get everything curiosity bots do. In addition you can publish articles, including opinion pieces, on our dedicated Patrons’ Lounge.
Commander
$10 or more per month
You get to vote on everything that happens behind the scenes, including new features, new ideas, even occasional guest articles. You can request infinite articles and, especially if you aren’t a physicist yourself, you can get personal explanations to all your physics-y questions any day. Plus, you get everything propulsion bots do too, and the satisfaction that our servers are up and running all because of you.
Professor
$15 or more per month
The Professor tier is open to science teachers, researchers and others with a background in physics who are interested in becoming an integral part of our venture. You will be a writer and editor, gain access to our publishing platform and have control over your writing. You will also get an @physicscapsule.com forwarding e-mail address and be, for all intents and purposes, a part of the daily workings of Physics Capsule while the extent of your participation (or the lack of it) will remain your decision entirely.

Patrons’ lounge, (so long as at least one Propulsion Bot exists) where patrons can write absolutely any thoughts they have about science and get published on Physics Capsule.
