Stellar compositions are not static; they can be influenced by various factors, including the ingestion of planets. This phenomenon can alter the chemical makeup of stars, resulting in detectable variations in their elemental abundances. By analyzing these variations, scientists can glean insights into the occurrences and mechanisms of planet engulfment by stars.
