Energyne is the company funding the work in hopes of cashing in on the science and making it a weapon. Claire Wyden actually holds the escape pod hostage from the lone survivor on the space station until she secured the rest of the samples.  The pod blows up on re-entry sending the samples crashing to Earth in Florida, Montana and the gorilla habitat in San Diego where George discovers it and is gassed.

Okoye arrives at the zoo to find his friend tripled in size and scarred after killing a grizzly bear like a bug.
