  Alphard
Not well known, but surprisingly prominent, Alphard dominates the dim constellation Hydra, the Water Serpent, and is hence also known as Alpha Hydrae.
Alphard also distinguishes itself by being a mild form of "barium star," in which barium and other elements that are formed by the slow capture of neutrons are enhanced.
When Alphard was young, it had a more massive companion that died first, and in the process contaminated it with the by-products of nuclear fusion that had been shovelled to the top.

 Review: Toyota Alphard Electric-and-gasoline Hybrid Mini Van
Transitions between gasoline and electric power would be all but undetectable without that display, and the Alphard's silky smooth ride is compounded by its continuously variable automatic transmission, which keeps the gasoline engine at an even speed, and therefore, engine note, at all road speeds.
Altogether, the hybrid system is capable of pushing out over 170PS; 131 from the engine, 17 from the front motor and 25 at the rear, which is enough to provide surprisingly sprightly acceleration for very little effort and to keep the van humming along at 140km/h on the highways.
The space and level of comfort inside equals or exceeds that of Lexus or Mercedes limousines, so it is hardly surprising that large companies and government ministries are adding them to their fleets.

 Spring Sky Tour: Hydra the Sea Serpent
This star is more commonly known as "Alphard", The Solitary One, because it stands as the lone bright star in this otherwise empty part of the sky.
Alphard is a star that is literally running out of gas.
As a star burns up all the hydrogen at its center, it starts to burn helium (which is the "ash" from the hydrogen burning), which makes it expand, get brighter, and turn red -- it becomes a red giant.
