In science:

The steep metallicity –age gradient in Sgr is due to ISM removal during the Galactic plane passages, ISM reformation due to stellar mass loss, and possibly accretion of metal-enriched gas from our Galaxy.
The Planetary Nebula population of the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy
In combination with the self-enrichment scenario above, this would give an even faster increase of metallicity with time.
The Planetary Nebula population of the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy
It is worth testing whether the isolated transition galaxies between dIrr and dSph, such as Phoenix, happen to be located in regions of a low density of accretable, non-enriched gas.
The Planetary Nebula population of the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy
The steep metallicity-age gradient, and the very high recent abundance, must be due to a combination of stripping of older ISM from Sgr, with enrichment from its own stellar mass loss.
The Planetary Nebula population of the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy
The fact that Fornax, which is in a much wider orbit around the Milky Way, shows very similar recent enrichment, may indicate that rampressure stripping is not the dominant effect.
The Planetary Nebula population of the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy
The helium content of red supergiants is changes significantly (typically by ∆Y = 0.10 or more) as a function of the rotation velocities during the main-sequence phase. A higher helium abundance results in the evolutionary tracks stopping at slightly warmer temperatures than in the absence of such enrichment.

However, the amount of helium enrichment critically depends on the assumed physics of the models.
