Superdwarf stars found with lead-rich clouds and smaller zirconium- and yttrium-rich layers, as expected.

Royal Astronomical Society announcement

Paper on the observed new star transition

Really the heavy metal song should write itself.

*******************************************************************************

Ripped from the heart of a giant red star

Hot strange subdwarf seen from afar

Corona stolen by gravity's bully

Now their helium can fuse fully

*

Fraunhofer lines you blow my mind

Every element one of a kind

Spectra fly three hundred parsecs

'Til they are trapped by human techs

*

Lead nebulae floating on stellar glare

Heavy metal sundogs running everywhere

Zircon's metal and Ytterby's pride

Heavy mass but still they glide

*

Seven times hotter than our sun

Evolving stars are so much fun

The more we look, the more we discover

Just look up at night, become a star-lover.

But, until then.
