Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Neutralized (formerly Safe)

Special Containment Procedures: While no physical evidence of SCP-XXXX-1 exists, radio transmissions preformed by this "Astronaut" must be monitored regularly (about 2-3 hours between checks). SCP-XXXX instances should be stored in a secure video storage unit in Site-15. If SCP-XXXX-1's memetic effect has effected any staff researching SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-1, please notify site director.
SCP-XXXX instances should be stored in a secure video storage unit in Site-15. No guards are to be present at SCP-XXXX's location, as it is deemed unnecessary.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an anomalous radio transmission. Analysis from the transmission shows it is being transmitted from the moon, although, when an expedition was suggested, no transmitter was found. Most of the transmissions consist of "SOS" and "HELP", although, has also transmitted many videos, too. When the videos are deciphered, it depicts an astronaut (hereby designated as SCP-XXXX-1) on the surface of the moon yelling into space, asking for help and to go home. Most of the videos are described by staff as "saddening" and "depressing". When asked why they thought this, staff said it was because "He was crying for help, and there was nothing we could've done. It just seemed so…sad".

SCP-XXXX-1 produces a memetic effect that, when a person views a video or listens to a transmission for more than 10 minutes, the subject will be diagnosed with bipolar syndrome1. After 2 weeks of viewing SCP-XXXX, subjects will go into immediate cardiac arrest. Surviving subjects claims that they had a dream that depicts SCP-XXXX-1 saying "Oh god, you found me! Get me off this rock, I just wanna see my kids again". All subjects committed suicide after surviving the cardiac arrest.

Addendum: On ██/██/████, Agent █████ viewed SCP-XXXX for more than 10 minutes unbeknownst to staff, and suffered the cardiac arrest and was not treated in time. A note in Agent █████'s handwriting was found on his nightstand, saying this:

Addendum: By ██/██/████, all transmissions have ceased that have come through from SCP-XXXX. Archived versions of SCP-XXXX do not produce the bipolar symptoms or cardiac arrests, and and do not show SCP-XXXX-1 at all. Instead of SCP-XXXX-1, the entire broadcast is a black screen with the words "I AM HOME, I AM FREE" are shown on the screen. SCP-XXXX has been re-classified as Neutralized.
