Item # SCP-426
Description: SCP-426 was discovered in the city of Pripyat in 1991 by a research team visiting the former city. Its origins are unknown but suspected to be extra-dimensional.
Object appears to be a sphere of silvery liquid. its diameter varies between 10 meters and 15 meters as some form of wave appear to cross the surface. Object is highly magnetic in nature and exhibits a strong enough pull to cause a mild attraction to carbon atoms at ranges less then 30 meters. SCP-426 has a mass or roughly 210 metric tons, and a surface tension roughly equivalent to that of modern rubbers in tensile strength. Item is highly charged with an estimated voltage and amperage of roughly 2.8*10^6 and 2,300 respectively. During a test the entire magnetic apparatus used to house 426 was able to be powered by the object itself, although a surge nearly caused a containment breach and further tests have been halted as of this time.
The Object appears to be extra-dimensional in nature and objects inserted into the item do not emerge as expected on the far side. In one test a 10 km long ream of carbon fiber cable was lowered into the object without it emerging on the far side. Plans to plug SCP-426 into the national power grid are in early phases with estimated plug in date no sooner then December 2012.
October 4 2003 SCP-426 began exhibiting behavior indicative of intelligence. The surface area stretched itself into several long spikes which it used to impale the research team and drag them into itself. Since then 3 further incidents have been documented. There is talk of reclassifying SCP-426 as a Keter level object.
