We propose an immediately realizable scheme showing signatures of multipartite entanglement generated by radiation pressure in a cavity system with a movable mirror. We show how the entanglement involving the inaccessible massive object is unraveled by means of field-field quantum correlations and persists within a wide range of working conditions. Our proposal provides an operative way to infer the quantum behavior of a system that is only partially accessible. © 2007 The American Physical Society.
