Belarion Armillus Al Dajjal – The Father of the Space Age

Parsons converted to Thelema, the English occultist Aleister Crowley’s new religious movement. In 1941, Parsons joined the Agape Lodge, the Californian branch of the Thelemite Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.). At Crowley’s bidding, he replaced Wilfred Talbot Smith as its leader in 1942 and ran the Lodge from his mansion.

From the article:

"Jack Parsons, the ‘Father of the Space Age’, without whom we would not be able to launch satellites into space, was an American rocket engineer, chemist, and Thelemite occultist."

For a while in the late 1980s I was very interested - to the point of obsession - in Jack Parsons, reading everything I could find by and about him in the Gerald Yorke Collection at the Warburg Institute, London. Even at the height of my adulation of those far-off days, however, I would not have dreamed of maintaining that without him, "we would not be able to launch satellites into space".

His contribution to the development of jet propulsion was deemed significant enough for a crater on the moon to be named after him, but that's a far cry from the claim made here.

It's a funny thing in science (as in all) that nature always seems to provide for "break-throughs" to be "backed-up" with the same discovery popping up in multiple places at about the same time. This often leads to "father of something" in history, which is sometimes contested.

"No, I discovered it first!"

Or (c)opyright and (R)egistered (TM)s are often contested.

Nature only intended the concept to get through, so she/he/it kicked a few receptive "geniuses" into gear. Any squabbles that follow are due to man's grasping nature.
