If the three-year journey of Physics Capsule must be summed up in one sentence it would be this: we started with the idea that Physics Capsule should be a magazine, we now think it is best seen as a book. Unlike a real book, though, you will likely read this page before you have read any of the book itself so let us keep the idea of an afterword loose. Our first edition was at inception in June of 2014. This, our second, is since November of 2017.

As a book Physics Capsule will never be complete in the true sense of the word. This is why it is now what we believe to be the perfect translation of a book projected onto the internet. It is the best of both worlds and is where we have always wanted to be since we started off. We see no shame in stating that it took us three long years to crystallise what Physics Capsule is because, while it has taken a form now that is more to our liking, there will always be minor improvements in the years to come. However it is safe to say the ideology this second edition embodies will remain intact as long as this online book exists.

We are open to new ideas, thoughts, suggestions and criticisms. Send us your feedback via e-mail and help us shape Physics Capsule. We also invite you to becoming a patron and support us with recurring payments anywhere from $1 to $15 per month in return for small rewards all the way to voting rights that decide the future of Physics Capsule. And during all this we hope you continue to enjoy the fundamental purpose for which we built this platform: to help everyone learn academic physics.
