Thanks to Bright for the suggestion I write a story about this particular SCP!
I'm happy with the story, and I hope you like it, ladies and gents. :D

They encounter space aliens, and manage to get their way back home.
This line jumped out at me, were we saying "space aliens" in 1902? Maybe "extra-terrestrial beings", or "a race of moon-dwellers" would fit better.
Space aliens as opposed to illegal aliens.
I'll be honest, I was expecting this to be a "Tesla caused the Tunguska event, only it's SCP-powered" story. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised to learn he electro-lasered MARS.
Well written, and a nice way to twist on expectations. +1
Well, when Tesla mentioned his "death ray" that would make war obsolete, he reportedly claimed it would be able to score the face of Mars… Besides, Spider Robinson already did the "Tesla caused the Tunguska event" thing in one of his Callahan's stories.
I liked the fact that the writer was aware of Tesla's pigeon fixation. :)
I like this. Only one problem, though: If the part that mentions an elephant is referring to Topsy's execution via AC, that didn't happen until 1903, whereas the entry is dated 1901.
I knew I had a timeline error in there.
Can I chalk it up to artistic license? x_x
I really like this, with the caveat that I thought "[The remainder of the page has been smeared with tears.]" was a bit melodramatic. Could just be me, though.
