Washington, D.C. – On July 4th, 1776, the Second Continental Congress unanimously adopted the Declaration of Independence, announcing the colonies’ separation from Great Britain.
The Constitution provides the legal and governmental framework for the United States, however, the Declaration, with its eloquent assertion “all Men are created equal,” is equally beloved by the American people.
Philadelphians marked the first anniversary of American independence with a spontaneous celebration, which is described in a letter by John Adams to Abigail Adams.
A Message from Maj. Gen. James McConville, Commander of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) at Fort Campbell
Fellow Screaming Eagles and Friends of the 101st:
Through the fall of the Taliban and the Bonn Conference in December 2001; endorsement of the Afghan Constitution in 2004; and two periods of national level elections between 2004 and 2009 the Government, Security Forces, and the people of Afghanistan developed, and continue to develop, as a democratic nation, absent the oppression of the Taliban Regime.
Reflecting on this evolution during our American Independence Day, I cannot help but wonder if there any similarities between the experience of the people of Afghanistan and us.

Pasadena, CA – From a distance, most of the Saturnian moon Dione resembles a bland cueball.
Thanks to close-up images of a 500-mile-long (800-kilometer-long) mountain on the moon from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, scientists have found more evidence for the idea that Dione was likely active in the past. It could still be active now.

Pasadena, CA – A new study tracks the “rain” of charged water particles into the atmosphere of Saturn and finds there is more of it and it falls across larger areas of the planet than previously thought.
The study, whose observations were funded by NASA and whose analysis was led by the University of Leicester, England, reveals that the rain influences the composition and temperature structure of parts of Saturn’s upper atmosphere. The paper appears in this week’s issue of the journal Nature.

Pasadena, CA – A distant world gleaming in sunlight, Earth’s twin planet, Venus, shines like a bright beacon in images taken by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft in orbit around Saturn.
One special image of Venus and Saturn was taken last November when Cassini was placed in the shadow of Saturn. This allowed Cassini to look in the direction of the sun and Venus, and take a backlit image of Saturn and its rings in a particular viewing geometry called “high solar phase.” This observing position reveals details about the rings and Saturn’s atmosphere that cannot be seen in lower solar phase.
