Jack Parsons, Jet Propelled Anti-Christ
The father of astral travel
Parsons and the Space Age
In 1936, Parsons joined the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory (GALCIT) of the California Institute of Technology, where he worked for Frank Malina and Theodore von K�rm�n in Pasadena.
While his formal education was limited, Parsons demonstrated tremendous scientific aptitude and genius, particularly in chemistry. His rocket research was some of the earliest in the United States, and his pioneering work in the development of solid fuel and the invention of JATO units for aircraft was of great importance to the start of humanity's space age. The noted engineer Theodore von K�rm�n, Parsons' friend and benefactor, declared that the work of Parsons and his peers helped usher in the age of space travel. Parsons co-founded the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, commonly referred to as JPL. According to von K�rm�n, Parsons' work in solid fuel research "... made possible such outstanding rockets as the Polaris and the Minuteman.
It was in 1942, the same year Parsons was appointed as head of the Agap� Lodge by Aleister Crowley (who himself had studied chemistry), that Parsons made the crucial breakthrough in the development of rocket solid fuel. Following intuition, Parsons switched from black powder to asphalt and potassium perchlorate. Compared with Peenem�nde, the contemporary German army research facility, America was finally in the race for rocket propulsion with solid fuel for the space age.
Parsons and the occult
Parsons saw no contradiction between his scientific and magical pursuits. Before each rocket test launch, Parsons would chant Crowley's hymn to the Greek god Pan. In 1942 Parsons was chosen by Aleister Crowley to lead Agap� Lodge of OTO in California following Crowley's expulsion of Wilfred Smith from the position.
Sara Northrup (aka "Sarah Elizabeth" or "Betty" Northrup), began living with Parsons and Parsons' wife, Sara's half-sister Helen Northrup; later, Parsons and Sara became involved in an affair, which caused strife with Helen and eventually led to Helen leaving with Wilfred Smith. Sara Northrup went on to marry author L. Ron Hubbard, who served as the occasional magical partner of Parsons, and who would later found the Church of Scientology.

John Whiteside Parsons - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Regarded as the "Father of Astral Travel", John Whitesides Parsons
was basically the inventor of modern rocket fuel.
He was also a raving fruitcake and leader of one of Aleister
Crowley's occult O.T.O. lodges in California.
Parsons died attempting to call forth the goddess Babalon incarnate
(a.k.a. The Scarlet Woman, The Great Mother, or the Mother of
Abominations), but not before he co-founded JPL or Jet Propulsion
Laboratory, which is now NASA.
Out There Jack Parsons, Jet Propelled Anti-ChristWe now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the press destroys information, religions destroy morals, and our banks destroy the economy.

Another excellent book about Parsons is "Sex and Rockets: The Occult World of Jack Parsons" by John Carter and Robert Anton Wilson. Amazon.com: Sex and Rockets: The Occult World of Jack Parsons (9780922915972): John Carter, Robert Anton Wilson: Books A pre-Scientology L. Ron Hubbard later claimed he was an investigator sent in to break up the occult group. He made off with Parson's girl (Betty), boat, and money, and got away with it. Parsons also hooked up with a young girl Marjorie Cameron, and it was she and Hubbard together with Parsons who attempted the creation of a "Moon Child" via occult rituals. Parsons died in a strange accident that seemed to be caused by careless handling of a chemical he had long worked with, and which raised suspicions as to how he could have made such a rookie mistake.
