A stellar endgame - the born-again Sakurai's object.

ASPLUND M., GUSTAFSSON B., LAMBERT D.L. and RAO N.K.

Abstract (from CDS):

The surface chemical composition of this remarkable star shows that it is hydrogen-deficient, carbon-rich and enriched in the light s-process elements. Spectra taken in May and October 1996 indicate a decrease in the surface hydrogen abundance by 0.7dex in five months along with an increase in the abundances of Li, Sr, Y and Zr. The abundance changes are in agreement with the hypothesis of the star being a rapidly evolving "born-again" AGB star experiencing a final He-shell flash, similar to FGSge. The 12C/13C ratio in October is very low, also suggesting hydrogen ingestion. By chemical composition, Sakurai's object resembles the R Coronae Borealis (RCrB) stars.
