Item #: SCP-000
Object Class: Keter
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-000 must be tracked and monitored by activity by three separate Mobile Task Force teams at all time. Any civilian person or persons not associated with the Foundation that become aware of SCP-000 must be administered Class-B amnesiac AMN-000-08 as soon as is feasible. Any person or persons associated with a current or defunct Group of Interest who demonstrates awareness of SCP-000 must be taken into Foundation custody if at all possible.
Description: SCP-000 is a large spherical planetoid with the approximate surface area of a large city (for current estimated measurements, see Document 000-033-D). The surface characteristics of SCP-000 superficially resemble a typical planetoid, including apparent meteorite craters and signs of minor tectonic activity. SCP-000 maintains an unpredictably varying orbital trajectory around Earth, varying from 1 to 15 kilometers (0.5 to 9 miles) in orbital height. It orbits Earth approximately once every 10-15 hours.
Humans typically cannot observe SCP-000 by any means. The mechanism for this is currently unknown, but appears to be an affect on the human brain, as experiments have demonstrated that other species are able to observe SCP-000 normally. The only way for a human to be able to observe SCP-000 is to simultaneously witness SCP-000 (either in person or through photographic media), and perceive SCP-000 being referred to by any generally accepted term for SCP-000, including the term "SCP-000" itself. For instance, reading this report and seeing the attached photograph of SCP-000 labeled "A photograph of SCP-000" is sufficient to permanently gain the ability to perceive SCP-000. After this, the affected human can observe SCP-000 with no difficulty, just as any natural object. This effect is permanent unless reversed via amnesiac or brain damage approximating the effect of an amnesiac.
The Foundation has been aware of SCP-000 since 18██, but [REDACTED] indicates that SCP-000 has been orbiting Earth without the knowledge of the majority of the human populace since [DATA EXPUNGED]
SCP-000 has so far not used it mass to destroy buildings, with the exception of [DATA EXPUNGED]. However, SCP-000 often decreases its orbital height drastically around centers of human population, for unknown reasons. Records recovered from [REDACTED], a cult circa 18th century, have indicated SCP-000 is of non-extraterrestrial origin (contradicting the so-called "alien observer" hypothesis), and is not sentient, but is capable of being influenced by and attracted to human thought. Investigation into the nature of SCP-000 is ongoing.

Item #: SCP-046
Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-046 is to be kept in a lighted, environmentally sealed plate steel enclosure. Handlers of SCP-046 must wear Class-6 Biohazard suits to prevent containment breach.
SCP-046 cannot be surgically removed from a host without killing it. SCP-046 will burrow deeper into a victim's flesh and organs in an attempt to avoid wounds that pierce the skin (whether accidental or surgical) and will not exit the host until the host dies. In its 'egg' stage, SCP-046 may be removed surgically, but such operations run a 67% risk of premature release of SCP-046 larvae.
SCP-046 may be removed from a host using [REDACTED] this electromagnetic stimulation causes SCP-046 to enter a seizure state in which it rapidly chews its way out of the host body. This procedure is required for all personnel exposed to SCP-046.
SCP-046 is unusually resistant to standard means of destruction, but may [REDACTED] or disabled through special application of electromagnetic force. Handlers are to be provided with appropriate equipment and are instructed to disable, not destroy, any instances of SCP-046 when possible.
Description: SCP-046 is a synthetic organism approximately 5 cm in length, with a segmented bright red body that visually mimics the Glycera bloodworm (commonly used for fishing bait). It is composed of microscopic robotic structures encased in a flexible plastic epidermis. SCP-046 acts a parasite/parasitoid of mammals, displaying a strong preference for primates [DATA EXPUNGED].
In isolation from mammals, SCP-046 remains inert. When any mammal comes within a ███-meter radius, SCP-046 will immediately seek it out, moving with a speed and efficiency not indicated by its appearance, climbing over or chewing through obstacles if possible. There is no known means of preventing SCP-046 from sensing the proximity of mammals.
SCP-046 feeds by extending a large proboscis that bears four hollow, unusually strong tooth-like jaws connected to poison sacs. These jaws are composed of an unknown inorganic material and have disproportionate bite power for their size, allowing them to chew through most common materials. When in contact with a potential host, SCP-046 uses its jaws to breach host clothing and skin and enters the body, its poison completely numbing the bite area on contact. Most commonly, SCP-046 will move underneath the host's skin until it finds a blood-rich area such as the heart, brain, or genitalia. SCP-046 then burrows into the affected organ or area and slowly feeds.
After █ to ██ days, SCP-046 transforms into a soft, black, spherical structure. After an incubation period of █ days to ███ months, this structure produces between ██ and ███ larvae of SCP-046, which consume the flesh of the host on emergence. Each new 'batch' of larvae shows slightly different qualities from the original instance of SCP-046, including [REDACTED].
SCP-046 subsists on an unknown source of energy, and has never been observed to naturally run out of power. Contained instances that are not viewed remotely will constantly attempt to escape and attack any nearby mammal(s). Several instances have been attempting escape with no cessation of high physical activity since initial containment (in excess of 10 years), necessitating regular repair of enclosures.
Multiple mature instances of SCP-046 in close proximity [DATA EXPUNGED] Refer to Addendum 064-2.
Addendum 064-1: Discovery: SCP-046 was identified by Task Force Delta-5 in São Gabriel da Cachoeira, Brazil (00°07′48″S 67°05′20″W) on April 15, 2000 at a local hospital. A patient, identified as █████ ██ ████████, a 23 year-old male, was brought in suffering from severe ocular trauma. He was declared dead on arrival. Upon removal of the patient's right eye, doctors noted that the sphenoid bone had been completely shattered, and that a large portion of the patient's frontal lobe had been breached. Inside the breached portion of the frontal lobe were several soft, black, spherical objects, around 7 mm in diameter of unknown origin. Hospital staff contacted local authorities.
The spherical objects hatched while the patient was in the morgue on the morning of April 16. A mortician noticed this anomaly and quickly sealed the room containing the patient. These 'eggs' hatched ████ worm-like organisms. By the time Task Force Delta-5 arrived in the late evening of April 16, the organisms had grown to the standard size of SCP-046 and had eaten a large portion of the patient's flesh, internal organs, and bone material. Instances of SCP-046 attempted to parasitize the agents by burrowing through their protective suits. Agents [DATA EXPUNGED].
Another victim, █████████ ███████, a 47-year-old female, was discovered in the area two days after the incident. The victim was severely injured in a car accident, apparently prompting an instance of SCP-046 to eat its way further into her body to avoid the wounds. The victim later died from shock and blood loss. The bodies of multiple other victims were later discovered; refer to attached documentation.
Addendum 064-2: Origin and Traits of Interest: Analysis of SCP-046's components has shown [DATA EXPUNGED] particularly due to the exponential effect on energy production of multiple instances of SCP-046 in close proximity. Each new 'generation' of SCP-046 creates energy fields of distinctive qualities when separated from the parent generation in the parent's parasitoid stage, leading to SCP-046 being contained in multiple separate Foundation sites for research purposes. Proposals to allow SCP-046 to further multiply under controlled conditions to allow extended study have been approved on a probationary basis.
Researcher Note: Yes, I understand we don't want to encourage spread of this thing, but it's already out there, isn't it? This could be the Holy Grail of energy production if we can reproduce how it works. This is what D-class personnel are for. Further, no, we can't talk about who may have created these things or why. Rumors about this so-called Factory didn't come from us. -Dr. ███████
Addendum 064-3: Spread: [DATA EXPUNGED] As of April ██, 20██, [REDACTED] uncontained instances of SCP-046 have been found, in [REDACTED] other locations worldwide.
// Hmmm, I'm really neutral about this one. But hey, give it a try. I can definitely see potential in it.//
