Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid (Keter upgrade pending O5 approval)

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the nature of SCP-XXXX-1, containment efforts will be focused on preventing space travel past the Moon's orbit. Various lobbying groups are to be established in all countries with an active space program which will advocate for the regulation and defunding of said space programs. Probes and other objects designed to go beyond the orbit of the Moon should either be intercepted and fed false data, or destroyed if necessary. Should these measures fail, embedded assets in whichever organization broke containment will attempt to destroy any data related to SCP-XXXX-1, intercept reports about SCP-XXXX-1, and cause a communications blackout lasting long enough for Mobile Task Force Epsilon-700 to detain and administer amnestics to all involved individuals.

Research crews stationed on SCP-XXXX-2 are to be regularly rotated every 3-4 years, while replacement D-Class personnel are to be rotated upon the request of the research crew.

Description: SCP-XXXX-1 is assumed to be a sphere encompassing the Earth and Moon, with the inner wall located approximately 100,000 KM from high orbit. Though the object is too large to be accurately measured, no gaps or breaks in the observable area of the wall have been located after ██ years of exploration.

The inner surface of SCP-XXXX-1 is covered with layers of holographic projectors, which display all discovered planets, stars and other phenomena on a constant loop. Each individual 'celestial body' has its own projector, allowing them to increase or decrease in brightness, move, and change states (e.g. star to supernova). The projections, through an unknown mechanism, can emit various forms of radiation at elevated levels. While these emissions are not as strong as those from an actual star, they still generate lethal amounts of gamma, X-ray, and neutron radiation. This renders physical exploration of the surface impossible, barring several areas with low to no stellar activity.

The bare surface of SCP-XXXX-1 is an alloy between chromium, tungsten, several metals which have no equivalent on Earth, and a substance extremely similar to SCP-148. The surface of SCP-XXXX-1 is highly resistant to damage, and seems to be capable of self repair; this has been found to be a property of one of the unknown metals. However, several areas show large amounts of wear which is not being repaired, suggesting that the surface's regeneration is capable of being overwhelmed.

SCP-XXXX-2 is a space station located 5000 km above SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX-2 is capable of supporting human life indefinitely, with hydroponic farms and an atmosphere generation system being active before its discovery by the Foundation. SCP-XXXX-2 uses similar radiation projection technology as SCP-XXXX-1 to render it invisible to most forms of detection beyond sight. A section of the station contains what appear to be twenty (20) nuclear fusion power generators, four (4) of which are nonfunctional. Experimentation with the remaining generators has proven that SCP-XXXX-1 is unaffected by their failure; their purpose is still unclear.

Several consoles containing highly corrupted technical documents and what are assumed to be personal messages have been located around the station (see Addendum-01). Foundation exolinguists have translated as much of the documents as possible, but the corruption appears to be irreversible. None of the discovered consoles so far have had any ability to interact with SCP-XXXX-1. All attempts to pierce the surface of SCP-XXXX-1 or locate an exit have ended in failure.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX-1 was discovered after the launch of the Voyager 2 probe on August 21st, 1977, when the probe registered a large impact before suddenly losing connection. Embedded assets alerted the Foundation, and an expedition was launched after the appropriate measures were taken to cover up Voyager 2's failure. Upon arrival at Voyager 2's last known location, the crew observed the existence of SCP-XXXX-1 before experiencing a similar impact with what is now known as SCP-XXXX-2. After a second expedition successfully boarded SCP-XXXX-2, the current containment procedures were drafted, and breaching and exploration experiments began.

Incident Report Alpha-01: On █/██/████, Breaching Crew 07 reported success in breaching a weakened portion of SCP-XXXX-1. Requests for further confirmation were met with radio silence. A security crew was sent to investigate. Reports from security personnel found that the entirety of Breaching Crew 7 were dead from asphyxiation, due to shattered helmets. Most of the crew had various breaching tools and other implements still in their hands, suggesting the helmet damage was self inflicted. When asked about the integrity of the wall, the personnel stated that SCP-XXXX-1, though heavily damaged, did not appear to be perforated. Due to SCP-XXXX-1's ability to self repair, whether Breaching Crew 07 were truly successful is unknown. All breaching experiments have been halted pending O5 review.
