Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the immobile nature of SCP-XXXX, a containment chamber has been built around it at its location in Menocela Park. All of the civilians around this area should be informed that the area around the park was bought by F.N.L.K Labs for building a nuclear research lab, and instructed not to enter the park area to avoid directly witnessing SCP-XXXX. The containment chamber is to be guarded by four security personnel, if any intruders are noticed near the building they are instructed to leave, preferably without any force by the guards.

Every 15 hours an agent in a Level A protection hazmat suit is required to enter the containment chamber, and deposit a flash-drive with at least 600 MB of data on it into the SCP-XXXX, to prevent its shrinkage in size.

If for more than 15 hours no information carriers were placed inside of SCP-XXXX, due to Hawking radiation, SCP-XXXX will start to lose its weight while releasing immense amounts of radiation in every direction up to 2001 meters from the sphere, causing massive mutations in every living entity.

It has been calculated that it would take half of our universes Poincare time2 for SCP-XXXX to completely evaporate.
In this time, the radius of the radiation influence sphere will become larger than the observable universe, or 87.2×1013 ly.

Note: after incident V-XXXX-856 it is forbidden for any living entity to step closer than 0,2 meters from SCP-XXXX without an O5 authorization.

After the incident, 4 experiments were proposed, 2 of which were declined:

Author Proposition (Shortened) State Reason
Dr. Werman Leave SCP-XXXX without new information for 24 hours. DECLINED It is too dangerous to leave SCP-XXXX without repeating procedure FN-XXXX-2417 for more than 15 hours.
Dr. Niev Send a human with a wireless audio transmitting device through SCP-XXXX to record what is happening to the objects thrown into it. ACCEPTED The experiment will be conducted on 12/██/2███.
Dr. Heron Attempt to rebuild the original Q.I.S.U. by using the recovered blueprints. DECLINED We cannot risk creating another SCP-XXXX.
Dr. Grim Test SCP-XXXX's reaction to contact with various objects. ACCEPTED The experiment will be conducted on 23/██/2███.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a perfectly spherical phenomenon identified as an Informational Kugelblitz4, 4 meters in diameter, floating 0,97 meters off the ground.

Any information carriers (flash drives, physical documentation, mobile phones, etc.) that are placed near the SCP-XXXX are sucked into the Event horizon5, after which they disappear out of sight, then after some amount of time, they appear near SCP-XXXX with 100% of original data removed from the object itself.

Due to the strong6 passive radiation that SCP-XXXX emits, every electrical mechanism 5 meters away from SCP-XXXX is deactivated.

SCP-XXXX only detects and consumes "active" electrons. That, in the case of technological devices, means that all of the battery charge and the information on them will be destroyed.

It is still unknown how SCP-XXXX detects non-electrical information carriers.

Originally, SCP-XXXX was found in the Menocela forest near an abandoned lab, which later was re-worked into the containment chamber for SCP-XXXX. It was found due to reports from nearby clinics all reporting patients with high-level radiation sickness.

Near SCP-XXXX's original location were found ██ pages of documents and blueprints containing information regarding an attempt to create a Quantum Information Storage Unit (Q.I.S.U.) and a flash drive containing several audio and video files on the creation of Q.I.S.U.

It is possible that SCP-XXXX is not the first one to be created from a failed test of the Q.I.S.U.
By analyzing the remaining documents, it is considered that 3 Q.I.S.U. have been created in total, with only one being found.
