Item #: SCP-144

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: One Foundation agent is to monitor any activity involving SCP-144. The monks residing at the temple where SCP-144 starts aren't to be disturbed. A no-fly zone has been established in the area surrounding SCP-144 by the Chinese government in cooperation with the Foundation.

Description: SCP-144 is a rope that extends upward from a Buddhist temple to a small asteroid-like satellite in orbit. The monks at the temple perform an annual ritual in which they climb the rope to the summit; almost everyone who has climbed it never returned. The rope is slowly rising upwards due to gravity and the end is predicted to leave the base in the near future.

Additional Context: Six D-Class were sent up SCP-144; four survived, one died and the last one is MIA.
