Like @schedule, @async wraps an expression in a Task and adds it to the local machine's scheduler queue. Additionally it adds the task to the set of items that the nearest enclosing @sync waits for. @async also wraps the expression in a let x=x, y=y, ... block to create a new scope with copies of all variables referenced in the expression.
