" -'It’s amazing how much you get done here without having the feeling you’re actually doing much. Many people here say it's hard to understand Aspen without having been there. I have no idea if that will hold for you, but it certainly did for me.'-This remark reflects the essence of my stay. I have never been at a research institute that enabled me to get back to the enjoyable basics of scientific research like the ACP does. Away from obligations, in a comfortable, inspiring environment, where there is nothing but your colleagues, their exciting new work, and you."
