Jack Parsons, King of the Occult Rocket Men

Fortean Times:
One of the founding fathers of American rocket-science was a character strung between Scott Fitzgerald, Jack Kerouac, and the Devil himself.
John Whiteside Parsons, born Marvel, known as Jack, writer, visionary, dedicated occultist, and chemist of genius, was born in 1914 and died in 1952 in a mysterious explosion whose cause has never been fully explained.

See? That's what L. Ron. meant when he told Marjorie that Jack was "Sky high."

Okay, a bad, belabored joke. Feel free to heap negative reactions my way.
