The Mad Scientist
Without Jack Parsons, it’s possible that Neil Armstrong would never have stepped foot on the moon, and American military power would be a fraction of what it is now. Unfortunately, Parsons’ global influence was overshadowed by his peculiar and scandalous hobby as a black magic cult leader. One of his followers was L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology.
After his death, Parsons’ reputation dwindled into obscurity, and few understood his significance for years. That is until a man named George Pendle researched the scientist and found his experiments, occultism, and odd behavior intriguing. Although he is known for being crazy, there is a lot more to Jack Parsons and his contribution to science.
