During the transmission, Quatermass is harshly critical of the space mission, and predicts that missions like it are wasteful and probably doomed in some way because they don't produce anything useful. Not long afterwards, malfunctions begin to show up, and the mission fails, with all lives lost, due to unknown causes.

A group of young religious zealots marches to the circle, apparently to take it over for some reason of their own...moreless
