** The abomination is called "-K" because it's a Keter-class entity (well, actually "[[spoiler:Apollyon]]", but that's basically just "[[spoiler:world-ending Keter that we have no way of stopping]]").

** I already thought that, but given the Foundation rarely skips letters while labeling SCP sub-items (at most they redact the components' descriptions)...

* SCP-2314-A to G are the pillars above ground and chains below it. -H is the underground prison, -K is the abomination held inside it. Why the hell are -I and -J missing?

->'' "The reaction of SCP-682 is notable for several reasons. First, it is one of the few incidents where SCP-682 has come in contact with biological tissue and not entered a “rage” state. Second, it has raised questions as to the physical make-up and composition of SCP-053, in regards to the lack of response of SCP-682. Third, it has provided a possible solution to long-term containment. However, approval for the mutual containment of two highly dangerous SCP items in a single containment unit is not likely."''

*** A space shuttle is ''supposed'' to fly in space. It's designed, built and used for that very purpose. It's not anomalous to encounter a space shuttle in space because, well, that's where you'd expect to find one. A 1958 Volkswagen bus, however, is ''not'' any of those things by any stretch of the imagination. There are, to date, no known methods of converting an otherwise ordinary Volkswagen to enable it to achieve orbit and enable its passengers to survive in the vacuum without modifying it to the point where it is essentially not a Volkswagen anymore, and there certainly weren't any such methods in the 1950s. The spaceship bus is anomalous because the Foundation have no idea what the people who modified it did to it, how they managed to launch it, how they managed to survive in it for as long as they did, and how they managed to do all of this while being beatnik dropouts in the 1950s. In short, it's anomalous because everything about it goes against all reasonable knowledge, understanding and expectation -- or, in other words, it's an ''anomaly''.

** Well, that's what an implication ''is'', really. It's raising an indirect suggestion or inference without confirming it concretely. Like you yourself say, the dates ''could'' be far apart, or they ''could'' be quite close together; hence, there's nothing to stop anyone who wants to draw a connection between the death of the climber and the appearance of the second creature from doing so. In any case, the very fact that we have a second creature appearing at some point after a significant character to the narrative dies as a result of an encounter with the first creature, coupled with the fact that the narrative suggests that the creature does ''something'' to those it catches, clearly allows the reader to draw such a conclusion.
