SCP-0000 on Wrangel Island.

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-0000 is contained by the conditions of the 0000/Shephard Protocol at its original location of discovery. In order to maintain containment of SCP-0000, it is imperative that the 0000/Shephard Protocol is carried out once daily, and the canisters involved are locked in place exactly 24 hours to the second from the previous iteration of the Protocol. Failure to complete this process within these parameters have resulted in severe stress to the SCP-0000 megastructure, and to Wrangel Island as a whole. The vent on the core containment unit of SCP-0000 is to be monitored routinely with densometers.

0000/Shephard Protocol: Once daily, at a period of time exactly 24 hours to the second from the previous iteration of these procedures, seventeen metal canisters must be inserted in sequence into SCP-0000's central core. From the moment the first canister is inserted into the core, each additional canister must be inserted within one second of the one before it - they cannot be inserted simultaneously or out of order.

Each canister must be loaded with an approved loading device, as determined by the SCP-0000 research team. The nature of SCP-0000 is such that loading devices may not be the same from day-to-day; personnel are required to confirm the appropriate loading device with the on-site supervisor prior to each iteration of the 0000/Shephard Protocol. Failure to do so could result in a breakdown in SCP-0000's containment stability.

Occasionally, after the loading and insertion of the canisters is complete, SCP-0000 will reject a canister. In the event a canister is rejected, staff are required to carry on them treasured personal possessions with high sentimental value to be used as replacement loading devices. Staff assigned to SCP-0000 are to be kept on a rotating cycle to determine who will be tasked to provide a personal item if a canister is rejected.

Due to the size of Wrangel Island and the nature of SCP-0000, alternate containment procedures are unlikely to be effective in containing SCP-0000. Regardless, the SCP Foundation North American Engineering Corp has been tasked with developing alternate containment procedures for SCP-0000 and the island, should SCP-0000 breach containment in a significant way.

Description: SCP-0000 is an anomaly located beneath an earthen mound on Wrangel Island in the Arctic Ocean. The mound itself is part of a dilapidated containment structure of unknown origin - the design of the structure's interior matches the aesthetics of similar structures from the 1970s and 1980s, but the advanced technology within the structure has no modern-day equivalent, and is believed to be well beyond modern mankind's capabilities. Additionally, age testing of materials from within the containment structure has been inconclusive, with many objects seemingly thousands of years old.

The exact appearance and makeup of SCP-0000 is unknown; the anomaly is currently locked within the containment core. All access ports to the central core have been welded shut, though SCP-0000 is still exposed due to a cracked vent seal on the lower section of the containment hull. As direct observation of SCP-0000 is invariably fatal to biological entities and immediately destructive to machines, the few attempts to observe SCP-0000 through the crack in the vent seal have been unsuccessful, as have attempts to repair the crack.

SCP-0000 exudes an unknown but measurable1 energetic waveform that dramatically and uniformly reduces the density of everything it encounters. The wall of the core containment chamber directly opposite of the broken access port has collapsed, and testing of the debris shows that the steel that once composed the wall was reduced in density by up to 98.3%, severely weakening it and leading to its collapse. Additional supports installed in that area by the SCP-0000 research team have also been compromised by the anomaly; as denser materials are typically affected more by the anomaly than less dense materials, the majority of new support structures have been made from lightweight foams and aerogels. The composition of the interior of the containment core, as well as how it mitigates the effects of SCP-0000 on itself, is unknown.

The device built to contain SCP-0000, called "Randall's Device" in recovered documentation, apparently uses a kind of energized plating on the interior of the containment core to mitigate the effects of SCP-0000.
