We confirm that this star has an unusually high [Sr/Ba] abundance ratio. Additionally, ROA 276 exhibits remarkably high abundance ratios, [X/Fe], for all elements from Cu to Mo along with normal abundance ratios for the elements from Ba to Pb. The chemical abundance pattern of ROA 276, relative to a primordial ω Cen star ROA 46, is best fit by a fast-rotating low-metallicity massive stellar model of 20M, [Fe/H]=-1.8, and an initial rotation 0.4 times the critical value; no other nucleosynthetic source can match the neutron-capture element distribution. ROA 276 arguably offers the most definitive proof to date that fast-rotating massive stars contributed to the production of heavy elements in the early universe. Description: We obtained a high-resolution optical spectrum for the red giant ROA276 and a comparison red giant star ROA46 (V=11.54) using the Magellan Inamori Kyocera Echelle spectrograph at the 6.5m Magellan Clay Telescope on 2007 June 22-23. Both stars have proper motions and radial velocities consistent with cluster membership. The total exposure time was 10 minutes per target (spectral resolution of R=56000 and R=44000 in the blue and red arms, respectively).
