10. Fraser MacDonald: Escape from Earth

Escape From Earth is the untold story of the engineers, dreamers and rebels who started the American space programme.

It’s the wild and improbable true story of Frank Malina, founder of what became NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Jack Parsons, his research partner and bedhopping occultist with delusions of grandeur and connections to the likes of Aleister Crowley and L. Ron Hubbard.

Fraser MacDonald reveals how soaring ideals were entangled in the most human of complications: infidelity and divorce, betrayal and treason.
