                                                            or some time now, I have been ruminating on the                               Theirs was the kind of leadership I’ve come to value

                                                            In June, those ruminations took a new turn when I                             One normally shy student became the first to step

W         hen the Disney movie about racehorse Secretariat reaches
          theatres, Kate Tweedy ’71 will have a unique reason to see it.
Not only is she interested in the story of the legendary 1973 Triple
Crown winner, she also wants to see which young actress plays the
part of twenty-year-old Kate Tweedy.
       It was the late 1960s when Tweedy’s mother, Penny Chenery,

grandfather’s horse farm in Virginia. Tweedy’s mother knew quite a bit
about horses, having grown up around them and continuing to ride as
an adult, but she knew little about the racing industry. “She gave
herself a quick self-education about horse racing and took over the
stable,” Tweedy said.
       Until that point, her mother had been “a frustrated housewife,” in                     was in a position to reach out to other people as an advocate for the

horses as divisive factors in her life. “We essentially lost my mother to

                                                               Through most of December 2007 and
                                                       January 2008, McFadden was on the barren ice
                                                       of Antarctica, discovering, labeling, and collect-

                                                       to Earth, known as meteorites. Before that, she
                                                       was an investigator and education/outreach
                                                       manager for a NASA project called Deep Impact,
                                                       which essentially rammed a spacecraft into a
                                                       comet to see what was going on inside. She was
                                                       on the science team for the Near-Earth Asteroid
                                                       Rendezvous (NEAR), which from 1996 to 2001
                                                       examined Eros, an asteroid about 160 million
                                                       miles from Earth. Now she’s taken her expertise
                                                       to asteroids farther away, as an investigator and
                                                       education/outreach director for Dawn, NASA’s
                                                       first mission to orbit main-belt asteroids.

                                                       page tome that she coedited, to help explain
                                                       what makes an asteroid a main-belt asteroid.

                                                       because their growth was disrupted by Jupiter’s

                                          PhD. It was more than twenty years later, in 2006,
                                          when she sat next to ANSMET’s lead investigator at
                                          an event, that she realized the opportunity still existed
                                          for her, especially since her daughters Whitney and
                                          Katherine were grown and her empty-nest years just
                                          beginning. It turns out that more than a few mete-
                                          orites remained in the vast expanse of Antarctic ice,
                                          and McFadden joined an eight-person ANSMET team
                                          that would collect 711 of them, ranging from tiny,
                                          half-inch pieces to an eight-pound behemoth.
                                                 The day after Thanksgiving in 2007, McFadden
                                          set off for Los Angeles, where she met the rest of her
                                          team and flew on to New Zealand. On November 27,
                                          with an arsenal of NSF-issued parkas and other
                                          cold-weather gear, she flew from New Zealand to
                                          Antarctica’s McMurdo Station on a U.S. Air Force
                                          C17 cargo plane. Traveling with cargo should have
                                          been a tip-off to the level of luxury to come.
                                                 There is no Holiday Inn in Antarctica.
                                          During her eight-week stay on the barren continent,
                                          McFadden spent a week training at McMurdo, the
                                          closest thing to a town in Antarctica and the scientific
                                          community’s home base, then forty-two days living in
                                          a tent on a remote stretch of ice. It was summer,
                                          which meant temperatures hovered between zero
                                          and ten degrees Fahrenheit, despite the constant
                                          illumination of the sun. For eight hours each day,
                                          McFadden was outside, systematically examining
                                          rocks to determine their celestial birthright. At night,
                                          she would hang her damp clothing at the uppermost
                                          tip of her tent, the spot to which much of the heat

                                                 The field site where she worked was 250 miles
                                          from McMurdo Station. On her very first day at the
                                          remote site, 30 mile-per-hour winds and poor visibil-

                                          Salon, and Biology II with Madge Evans. “By the time I got to Bio II I was

                                          Miss Evans’s teachings.”
                                                She credits then Science Department Head Molly Plumb with her first
                                          leadership role in the sciences. “Miss Plumb asked me to be head of the lab
                                          assistants as a senior. I didn’t really have any insight into leadership at the
                                          time,” she said.
                                                In that position, McFadden was allowed to do her own experiments.
                                          “I decided to make firefly luminescence,” she remembered. “It really wasn’t
                                          an experiment because all I did was purchase the right chemicals and mix
                                          them up.” Although McFadden said she didn’t draw any conclusions from her
                                          look at luminescence, her independent experiment planted seeds for a life of
                                          scientific inquiry. “That opportunity definitely got me started,” she said.

Today the scientist is focused on NASA’s Dawn mis-
sion to Ceres, which may contain water, and Vesta,
a dry asteroid that has spawned one in seven of
the meteorites found on Earth. The project could
shed light on how water has affected the formation
of planets.
        As far as those existential questions, McFadden
still doesn’t know the answers. She doesn’t know how
life began on Earth, or what conditions caused bodies
in one part of the solar system to differ so much from
those in another. She wouldn’t be surprised to find
some kind of life elsewhere in the universe—it is just
too vast for McFadden to imagine otherwise.
        For now, every meteorite analyzed and every
new photo from outer space are steps along her path
to discovery—a path with forks and switchbacks,
but also with continual opportunity for that heart-
pounding breakthrough. And for McFadden,
wherever that path goes, it leads to fulfillment. “I
derive a lot of satisfaction from understanding things
and discovering things,” she said. Simple but pro-
found words from a scientist, starry-eyed or not.

Help Us Meet The Dresden Challenge

I would like to honor Jake Dresden

for his inspiring service to Concord

    Academy. In that spirit, I hope

  you will join me in contributing

     to the Dresden Tribute Fund.

     Supporting this new fund is a

      meaningful way to honor the
                                                                                     n with his gr

   standing years as head of school.
                                       She will match every new and increased gift to the

                                       Annual Fund— dollar for dollar—up to $500,000.

                                       Your gift will have great impact, because it will help honor Jake and benefit the
                                       caring faculty and dynamic students who make this school so distinctive.

                                       A gift will be considered new if you did not contribute to the Annual Fund in the
                                       2007–08 fiscal year. If you did contribute in fy07–08, an increase this year will count
                                       toward The Dresden Challenge.

                                       Thank you very much for considering a new or
