fragment:SCP-5153-1

Item #: SCP-5153

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Foundation plants within the global scientific community are to coordinate the dissemination of disinformation campaign Gamma-19 ("Airburst") to conceal the true nature of SCP-5153.

Description: SCP-5153 refers to a large asteroid impact that occurred on 30 June 1908 near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River in the USSR. SCP-5153 was caused by a fifteen-kilometer meteor entering Earth's atmosphere before spontaneously demanifesting approximately seven to ten kilometers above the planet's surface. The energy required to displace SCP-5153 resulted in a 15 megaton explosion that destroyed 2,150 km2 of the Siberian taiga and killed three people.
