The Satanic Origins of NASA And The Occultists Behind It

Even to this day, most people are blissfully unaware of the incredibly bizarre and deeply disturbing circumstances that lead to the formation of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, more commonly known as NASA. What most people do not know is that its origins are steeped in the dark occult, ritualistic magic and Satanism. This can be easily evidenced in the plethora of occult symbolism that still runs through the organization today, and NASA isn’t shy when it comes to displaying its “satanic” roots. While the intent and motivations of this multi-billion dollar agency is a topic of much debate, it can no longer be denied that the function of NASA goes much deeper, and darker, than simply exploring the farthest reaches of space in the name of human progress.

This article aims to highlight much of the dark and disturbing history behind the formation of NASA and will reveal some of the motivations behind the creation of an agency which was designed primarily as a tool of deception and mass mind control. We will look into some of the key figures in the formation of NASA, such as the occultist and friend of Aleister Crowley, Jack Parsons, cartoonist and WWII propagandist Walt Disney, and Nazi weapons engineer Wernher von Braun.This article will be the first in a series of articles about NASA. Firstly we’ll be looking at some of the key figures behind the formation of NASA, and then in later articles, we’ll highlight some of the symbolism itself, such as the prevalence of the number 666 throughout NASA, the alchemical significance of 88 (the number of Mercury; the messenger of the gods), then we’ll go into more detail and provide evidence that clearly illustrates the Freemasonic connections to NASA which will reveal the true purpose of this organisation which as of 2022 takes 74 million dollars PER DAY (27 billion annually) from the US taxpayer.

The Origins of NASA

While on the surface, the founding of NASA may seem to many to be nothing more than the creation of a government agency responsible for the development of new technologies with the goal of exploring the cosmos. However, we only need to scratch the surface to reveal a very dark and sinister underbelly.

NASA was founded in 1958 during the presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower, with Eisenhower appointing Dr. T. Keith Glennan as NASA’s first administrator. Glennan had previously been a high-level administrator in charge of the procurement and management of government contracts for research and development during World War II. Glennan, who was the head of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) from 1953 to 1958, oversaw the agency’s transformation into what we now know as NASA. As the Director of NASA, he played a key role in launching the Mercury and Gemini programs (which were also both deeply ritualistic in nature and drenched in occult symbolism, but we’ll go into Mercury, Gemini and their occult significance with respect to NASA in a separate article).

In the late 1930s, the NACA established a laboratory in Pasadena, California, which would later become the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). The lab was initially created with the intention of researching and developing rocket propulsion technologies for military applications, but its scope soon expanded to include space exploration.

During World War II, JPL played a key role in the development of rocket technologies for the US military, and it continued to work on missile projects. Shortly after Glennan joined the NACA in 1942, JPL made a significant shift from military to space exploration, this focus on space was cemented when Glennan became the head of the NACA in 1953.

During his work with JPL, Glennan met a man named Jack Parsons. Parsons was a rocket engineer who had worked at JPL since 1936, and a person who quickly became a figure of much speculation due to his fascination with the dark occult and his close association with notorious English occultist Aleister Crowley. It’s reported that Glennan and Parsons worked on several projects together throughout the 1940s and 1950s.

Without Parsons, NASA would never have come into being, yet there is very little mention of Parsons on the NASA website, except for a small number of mentions in relation to old photos, and maybe the odd footnote. So who was this mysterious character and how was he responsible for the formation of one of the biggest and most influential government agencies on the planet?

Jack Parsons – The Dark Occultist

Jack Parsons was born Marvel Whiteside Parsons on October 2, 1914, in Los Angeles, California. As the son of a wealthy family, he grew up in an affluent neighbourhood and developed an early fascination with science fiction and fantasy, and he developed an early interest in rocketry. In his teenage years, Parsons began experimenting with explosives and rocket propulsion.

In the early 1930s, he changed his name to John and later became known to his friends and colleagues as “Jack”, and it’s believed that he took the name from John Whiteside “Jack” Parsons, a prominent British occultist and writer who was a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Order of the Golden Dawn was an organization devoted to the study and practice of various occult and metaphysical disciplines. An organization to which notorious English occultist Aleister Crowley was initiated in 1898 before going on to develop his own occult philosophy known as Thelema.

Jack Parsons’ early work in rocket propulsion not only made him a notable figure in the field of rocket science but also laid the foundation for the early NASA rocket projects.

In the late 1930s, Parsons and his colleagues formed the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), a research center that focused on developing rockets for military use. Parsons was instrumental in the development of JPL, and he played a key role in its early success. Under his leadership, JPL developed the first American rocket to reach the edge of space, known as the WAC Corporal.

But there was a far darker side to Jack Parsons; he also had a keen interest in the satanic occult and was involved in various secret societies, such as the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO) and the Agape Lodge. He was a follower and friend of Aleister Crowley, and he also played a key role in the OTO’s activities in Southern California during the 1940s.

Parsons’ involvement with Crowley and the OTO was not just limited to an intellectual curiosity. He was deeply involved in the practice of sex magick, which was one of the central tenets of the OTO. Sex magick involves using sexual energy to achieve altered states of consciousness and to manifest one’s desires. Parsons and his wife were known to perform satanic rituals that involved sexual practices and were even involved in a ritual to create a magical child, which they believed would bring about a new age of enlightenment.

Some of the rituals that Parsons performed include:

·         The Babalon Working: This was a series of rituals conducted in 1946 with the aim of invoking the goddess Babalon to bring about the “age of Horus.”

·         The Gnostic Mass: This is a central ritual of the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO), of which Parsons was a member. It involves a reenactment of the story of the life, death, and resurrection of the god-man, and is intended to bring about spiritual communion with the divine.

·         The Star Sapphire: This is a ritual designed to invoke the goddess Isis, and is part of the Thelemic tradition.

·         The Mass of Baphomet: This is another ritual from the Thelemic tradition that is intended to create a magical link between the participants and the god Baphomet.

·         The Invocation of Pan: This is a ritual that involves invoking the god Pan, and is intended to bring about an ecstatic state of consciousness.

In his 1949 work “The Manifesto of the Antichrist” Parsons wrote:

“The Manifesto of the Antichrist

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

I, BELARION, ANTICHRIST, in the year 1949 of the rule of the Black Brotherhood called Christianity, do make my Manifesto to all men. And I, THE ANTICHRIST, come among you, saying:

An end to the pretence, and lying hypocrisy of Christianity.

An end to the servile virtues, and superstitious restrictions.

An end to the slave morality.

An end to prudery and shame, to guild and sin, for these are of the only evil the sun, that is fear.

An end to all authority that is not based on courage and manhood, to the authority of lying priests, conniving judges  blackmailing police, and

An end to the servile flattery and cajolery of mods, the corona- tions of mediocraties, the ascension of dolts.

An end to restriction and inhibition, for I, THE ANTICHRIST, am come among you preaching the Word of the BEAST 666, which is, “There is no law beond Do what thou wilt.”

And I, BELARION, ANTICHRIST, do lift up my voice and prophecy, and I say:

I shall bring all men to the law of the BEAST 666, and in His law I shall conquer the world.

And within seven years of this time, BABALON, THE SCARLET WOMAN HILARION will manifest among ye, and bring this my work to its fruition.

An end to consciption, compulsion, regimentation, and the tyranny of false laws.

And within nine years a nation shall accept the Law of the BEAST 666 in my name, and that nation will be the first nation of earth.

And all who accept me the ANTICHRIST and the law of the BEAST 666, shall be accursed and their joy shall be a thousandfold greater than the false joys of the false saints.

And in my name BELARION shall they work miracles, and confound our enemies, and none shall stand before us.

Therefore I, THE ANTICHRIST call upon all the Chosen and elect and upon all men, come forth now in the name of Liberty, that we may end for ever the tyranny of the Black Brotherhood.

Witness my hand and seal on this […] day of […] 1949, that is the year of BABALON 4066.

Love is the law, love under will.

Belarion, Antichrist”

So why would a rocket engineer, a man of science, declare himself “the Antichrist” make such dark and, to many, disturbing proclamations?

Parsons’ statement  that “within nine years a nation shall accept the Law of the BEAST 666 in my name, and that nation will be the first nation of earth.” is likely a reference to the founding of NASA in 1958, exactly 9 years after the date of these writings in 1949.

This would certainly explain NASA’s fixation with occult symbolism and in particular the number 666. As illustrated in this short video…

Walt Disney – The Propagandist

Walt Disney’s connection to secret societies has been a subject of debate for many years, and while it’s difficult to prove any direct connection to the occult, there are several indications that he was in fact a high-level Freemason. In 1920, Walt Disney joined an organisation called DeMolay, which he remained a member of for several years. DeMolay is a youth organisation that was founded in 1919 and named after Jacques De Molay, the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar who was executed in 1314. DeMolay is closely associated with Freemasonry, and many of its members are also Freemasons. In fact, the organization was founded by Frank S. Land, who was a member of the Masonic Lodge in Kansas City, Missouri.

Further evidence that Disney was a Freemason is his secretive and highly exclusive Club 33 which was originally created as a private retreat for Walt Disney and his guests, but it has since become a highly coveted membership club for high-profile individuals. Membership is by invitation only and carries an “initiation” fee of $33,000. For those unaware of Masonic symbolism, 33 is a highly significant number in Freemasonry for many reasons but the main one being that it’s the highest degree within the Scottish Rite.

So we’ve established that Walt Disney did in fact have strong ties to secret societies; Freemasonry in particular. But what’s surprising to many is that he also played an integral role in the formation of NASA, particularly during the early years of the agency. In fact, Disney’s relationship with NASA began before the agency was even established, back in the early 1950s. 

By the time Disney became involved with NASA, he had already become a well-known producer of movies and television shows and had been involved in creating propaganda productions for the US government during World War 2. The government knew that the only way they would be able to launch an agency such as NASA, which would funnel huge amounts of funding directly from the task payer, was to gain the buy-in of the people through the use of TV propaganda, a tool that has proved to be extremely useful in the decades since.

So, Following Disney’s successful campaigns during WW2, he was tasked with creating productions relating to space exploration, developing a series of television programs called “Disneyland” that focused on space exploration to push the concept of space travel into the collective consciousness of the US population.

Several of these were clearly propaganda pieces with some productions featuring Nazi rocket engineer Wenher von Braun. These shows were a big hit with audiences, and they helped to get people excited about the entirely theoretical notion of exploring the cosmos.

Together, Disney and von Braun worked on a number of projects related to space exploration. They produced a show called “Man in Space,” which theorized on principles of space travel, and they also worked on a show called “Mars and Beyond” which explored the possibility of travelling to other planets. It’s also interesting to note that von Braun wrote a book in which a man named “Elon” would play a key role in the colonization of Mars… but more on that later.

The hidden symbolism in so much of Disney’s work has been documented for decades and it seems this obsession with occult symbolism was present right from the very start, possibly a result of his close ties to the Masonic belief system. The below image is from Disney’s 1955 production “Man in Space” which featured Wernher von Braun himself, and they clearly and very deliberately illustrated the number 666 onto their cartoon astronaut.

Revelations 13:18 states “This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.”

Disney’s work with NASA continued and they produced many more films for NASA over the years that were designed to maintain public interest in space exploration.

Werner Von Braun – The Nazi Rocketman

Wernher von Braun was a German Nazi aerospace engineer and space architect who played a key role in the development of rocket technology in Germany and the United States. He was born on March 23, 1912, in Wirsitz, Germany (now Wyrzysk, Poland), and died on June 16, 1977, in Alexandria, Virginia, USA.

Nazi rocket engineer Wernher von Braun

Von Braun worked for the Nazi regime in Germany during World War II, where he helped develop the V-2 rocket, which was used to attack Allied cities. After the war, he and other German rocket scientists were brought to the United States under Operation Paperclip, a secret program to recruit German scientists for American research programs.

From as early as 1936, Parsons and von Braun had been corresponding through letters, sharing their ideas and experiments related to rocketry. They also exchanged technical papers and scientific publications, which influenced each other’s work. Parsons was particularly impressed with von Braun’s design for a liquid-fueled rocket engine, which he believed was superior to the solid-fueled engines that were being used at the time. Following WWII, Parsons played a key role in helping von Braun secure a job with the US Army.

Parsons had established close ties with the US military through his work on rocket propulsion, and his connections and influence likely played a role in facilitating the recruitment of von Braun and other German scientists under Operation Paperclip.

In the United States, von Braun became a prominent figure in the development of rockets for space exploration, working for NASA on projects such as the Saturn V rocket that we’re told carried the Apollo missions to the moon. He was a key figure in the development of the American space program and was awarded numerous honours for his contributions to the field of rocketry. However, he remains a controversial figure due to his involvement with the Nazi regime and his work on weapons of war.

An interesting side-note regarding von Braun is that in 1953, five years before the founding of NASA, he published a book titled Project Mars: A Technical Tale, which made several references to a man named “Elon” who would play a key role in the colonization of Mars. Now, given the fact that Elon Musk has become one of the world’s most famous advocates of space travel in recent years, particularly in relation to the colonization of Mars, it can be no coincidence that von Braun chose the highly uncommon name “Elon”.

With so many of the founding members of NASA having strong connections to secret societies and dark occultists, it starts to seem highly likely that Musk’s ‘saviour of mankind’ persona is no accident. Rather, he has been placed there to carry out specific tasks in order to guide human society in the direction those in power wish us to be herded.

In addition to the fact that his name was mentioned in a 70-year-old book. The design of Musk’s “Starship” rocket bears a striking resemblance to the rocket pictured on the cover of von Braun’s 1953 book, with Elon Musk also stating in a 2019 tweet that he intended to make his rocket “more pointy”.

Another point of intrigue and mystery is the inscription on Wernher von Braun’s gravestone, which reads:


1912 – 1977

Psalms 19:1”

Psalms 19:1 states “the heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handywork”.

So the question is; why would the gravestone of a Nazi-turned-NASA rocket engineer have “Psalms 19:1” engraved onto it? There are a few possible reasons, but one of them has to do with the fact that this verse talks about the “firmament,” which is a term used in the Bible to describe the barrier which separates the “waters below” from “the waters above”.

Von Braun was also a key player in “Operation Fishbowl” which was a series of nuclear tests conducted by the United States government in 1962. The tests involved the firing of nuclear rockets high into the atmosphere to study the effects of high-altitude nuclear explosions. Given von Braun’s beliefs, these tests may very well have been an attempt to breach the firmament or to explore the boundary between the Earth and the heavens in order to either confirm or disprove the existence of the firmament and to gain knowledge about the true nature of the universe.

Now, if we assume that von Braun did in fact make the discovery that a “firmament” exists, it’s possible that he chose this verse for his gravestone as a way of expressing his reverence for the world which he believed was created by God as evidenced by “his handywork”. In this interpretation, the “firmament” represents the boundary between the earthly realm and the realm above, and the verse as a whole expresses wonder and awe at the beauty and complexity of the realm created by God for all life beneath the “firmament”.

Many believe that this was a deathbed confession of sorts, with von Braun proclaiming that the world we inhabit is actually an enclosed system, rather than a part of a larger open universe of planets. This, of course, is all just speculation, and there could be other reasons why von Braun chose this verse for his gravestone. But it’s an interesting possibility to consider, especially given his background as a rocket scientist and his interest in exploring the mysteries of space. Whatever his reasons, though, it’s clear that Psalms 19:1 held a special significance for him, and that he wanted it to be part of his legacy.

L. Ron Hubbard – The Sci-Fi Cult Leader

It has been documented that in 1950, Wernher von Braun and L. Ron Hubbard actually met at the World Science Fiction Convention, which was held in Los Angeles, California. At the time, von Braun was already a well-known rocket scientist, while Hubbard was still a budding writer and the founder of the Church of Scientology was still years away from being established.

According to various accounts, Hubbard was quite eager to speak with von Braun and impress him with his own knowledge of rocketry and space exploration. In one anecdote, Hubbard reportedly told von Braun that he had studied rocket science at George Washington University, which impressed von Braun at first until he realized that the university didn’t actually offer such a program.

Despite this, the two apparently hit it off and even exchanged letters after the convention, but it’s unclear what exactly they discussed or what their correspondence entailed. It’s worth noting, however, that von Braun was a devout Christian and there is no evidence to suggest that he was ever involved with the Church of Scientology or its practices.

Overall, the encounter between Wernher von Braun and L. Ron Hubbard at the science fiction convention remains an interesting footnote in the history of both men, and it’s possible that their conversation may have sparked some ideas or inspiration for their respective fields of work.

Jack Parsons on the other hand, was a very close associate of L. Ron Hubbard and Parsons even invited Hubbard to join Crowley’s Agape Lodge in the late 1940s.

It was Hubbard with which Parsons performed his “Babalon Working” ritual in 1946. “Babalon Working,” also known as the “Moonchild” ritual. This was a complex ritual designed to manifest the Thelemic goddess Babalon in human form, which Parsons believed would result in the birth of a magical child that would help to usher in a new era of human evolution. Hubbard’s role in the ritual has been the subject of some controversy, with some accounts suggesting that he may have exploited Parsons for his own gain.

NASA, Thelema & The Aeon of Horus

It is impossible to explain the tenets of the Thelemic belief system in a few short paragraphs, however, there is a strong connection between Thelema and the origins of NASA, with many of its ritualistic practices still present in NASA today.

This new era of human evolution which Parsons’ Moonchild ritual was said to usher in is also referred to as “The Aeon of Horus” in Crolwey’s Thelemic tradition. The concept of the Aeon of Horus is a central tenet of Thelema, a belief that Parsons and Hubbard both subscribed to.

According to Thelemic belief, the Aeon of Horus represents a new era in human history that began in in the early 1900s with the reception of The Book of the Law, which Crowley claimed was dictated to him by a spiritual entity named Aiwass. The Aeon of Horus is believed to be characterized by individualism, self-expression, and the worship of the god Horus, although the true meaning and intentions behind Crowley’s work have been very much misunderstood or misrepresented throughout the decades. Crowley still has a significant following to this day, particularly in the entertainment industry and throughout politics.

This is why the Eye of Horus has become such a prevalent occult symbol in our society – this will be the focal point of a series of upcoming articles. But back to NASA…

Parsons shared Crowley’s belief that the Aeon of Horus would be a time of spiritual awakening and the liberation of humanity from dogma and superstition. Maybe Crowley’s prediction was a century early because what unfortunately followed was a shift from the dogmatic religious beliefs of the early 1900s to the equally dogmatic beliefs thrust upon a population from our scientific institutions in the form of “scientism”. 

Never has “questioning the science” been a more blasphemous act than now. Which is why we must question it more than ever!
