Sure.  If you have a method called getEngine() which returns an  
Engine, you'll get an inspector for the Car which has a slot called  
"Engine".  Next to it you'll see a magnifying glass icon.  Click on it  
and choose "View" and an Inspector for the Engine will pop up in a  
separate window.  This works not just for objects but for collections  
of objects (Bags, arrays, ArrayLists, etc.) too.

What MASON doesn't have right now is a single browser-style inspector  
which wanders from object to object.  Perhaps an item for later.
