Item #: SCP-5513

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Data or media showing the location of SCP-5513 must be erased from public records. Document requests are to be sent to GRU-P and the Russian government concerning the Soviet Luna Program as it relates to SCP-5513.

Additional procedures will be decided once information is recovered either from these document requests or physical exploration and evaluation of SCP-5513.

Description: SCP-5513 is a former Soviet Lunar base located in Mare Moscovien,1officially abandoned in 1973. SCP-5513 lacks a power source, but all electronic and mechanical systems are fully operational. The mechanism by which this is achieved is not currently understood.

Due to the nature of Soviet record-keeping regarding failed missions, the exact date of the project's failure is unknown. SCP-5513 is believed to be part of a series of Soviet lunar missions meant to end in the permanent habitation of the far side of the moon.

Approximately 15 meters away from the south end of the base is a crashed lunar lander (designated SCP-5513-A). SCP-5513-A appears to have been destroyed by a high velocity impact with the lunar surface. Debris from the craft is scattered across an additional 67 meters south-southeast of SCP-5513.

SCP-5513-1 and -2 are humanoid entities inhabiting the area around and inside SCP-5513. These entities carry information identifying them as cosmonauts L. Anatolievich and O. Zakharovich respectively. SCP-5513-1's protective suit is physically damaged to the point of exposing it to the lunar vacuum.

Documents recovered from the Russian government indicate a high likelihood that SCP-5513-1 and -2 are Lyzlov Anatolievich and Oksana Zakharovich, who were both heavily involved in the Soviet lunar program and disappeared from Soviet records in the early 1970s.

On July 19th, 2021, a high resolution photograph of Mare Moscovien was taken by the LRO2 and SCP-5513 was first detected. Follow-up photography was accomplished on August 10th and a landing mission was planned for December 1st. Weather issues pushed the launch to December 4th.

This landing was accomplished on December 6th. This mission is ongoing. The following log excerpt has been tentatively added to this document.
