SCP-341 | A Collection of Extra-Solar Orreries (SCP Orientation)

SCP Orientation is an archive of files of the SCP Foundation.

Today we will be studying Item number SCP-341: A Collection of Extra-Solar, Object class: Safe.

A collection of eleven brass and iron orreries found in a large storage room of a basement at Oxford comprise SCP-341. Each orrery is a rough scale model of a different extra-solar star system, complete with planets, moons and one or more suns in the center. Testing dates each machine to be between 150-200 years old.

One orrery, known as “the wheel of doom” amongst researchers, depicts a similar solar system very reminiscent of our own Sol’s. The orrery is missing a model of Earth and instead has a free Moon roaming through a debris field similar to the asteroid belt present between Mars and Jupiter.
