Being portable, the tool can be placed anywhere and can be transported to any place with as much ease as is required. ESA's Planck satellite, a mission with significant participation from NASA, has revealed that the first stars in the universe started forming later than previous observations of the cosmic microwave background indicated. A key discovery, in the articulation and eventual acceptance of the "Copernican System," was the understanding of Planetary Retrograde Motion.

Plesser, an associate professor of physics and mathematics, may have trouble locating terrestrial objects, but he has no problem finding the stars in the sky: For the past eight years, he’s been running astronomy classes, regular public demonstrations, and other science outreach-education sessions at the Duke Teaching Observatory. That is, why do astronomers observe the same distribution of stellar masses – the initial mass function – apparently regardless of the initial conditions? [100] A deeper understanding of the formation of stars and planets is needed.
