Old Weird America: Jack Parsons, Sex Magic and Rocket Science Thursday, Jan. 9, 6pm Northside Library

Come hear the bizarre story of Jack Parsons--the genius behind the development of America’s rocket program—who also happened to believe he was able to conjure the woman of his dreams through an ancient magic spell. Weird is the word for Parson’s combination of the magic of notorious Satanist Alastair Crowley, the bad science fiction of L. Ron Hubbard, and the rocketry of Werner von Braun, which resulted in the development of the solid rocket fuel that took us to the moon.
