He is transported to a private clinic to stay under observation despite the protests of his wife. She bribes a nurse to bring Carroon to her and she finds that he is transforming into a monster.

a Professor is working on a project to colonize the Moon. While trying to gather support he is intrigued by mysterious traces showing up on his radar. It turns out they are crashing meteorites. Following them to where they should be landing, he finds a destroyed village and a mysterious factory too close to his designs for the Moon colony for comfort. He also finds strange, aerodynamic objects containing a mysterious, ammonia-based gas that infects one of his assistants. Officially, the factory is producing synthetic food, but despite the veil of secrecy surrounding it, Quatermass succeeds in finding out it harbors aliens with deadly designs on the Earth.
