High-resolution spectra of two stars: HD 122563 (blue) and HE 1523−0901 (red). While the former star has low abundances of r-process elements, the latter is the richest object in these elements ever found in the Galaxy’s halo. It is important to note that the spectrum of HE 1523−0901 shows a large number of strong absorption lines from lanthanides such as lanthanum (La), cerium (Ce), samarium (Sm) and europium (Eu), which produces the most intense absorption line at 4129.70 Å.
