Türkiye'de İlk Elektrik Tarsus'ta Üretilmişti!
(Resim: Tarsus'ta kurulan ilk hidroelektrik santralinin şimdiki hali)
Osmanlı Devleti'nde elektrik üretimi zannedilebileceği gibi önce başkent İstanbul'da ya da diğer büyük şehirlerde gerçekleşmemiştir. İmparatorluk sınırları içinde pek çok konuda olduğu gibi, elektrik üretimine ilk imzayı atan da ecnebi bir şahsiyettir. Osmanlı ülkesini, elektrik üretimiyle tanıştıran kişi, Avusturya'dan kaçarak Tarsus'a yerleşen ve dönemin Tarsus Belediyesi'nde çalışan ve Tarsusluların "Torfil" adını verdikleri Dörfler'den başkası değildir. İmparatorluk sınırları içindeki ilk elektrik üretimi, Dörfler'in girişimleriyle 15 Eylül 1902’de Mersin’in Tarsus İlçesi'nde gerçekleşti. Avusturyalı Dörfler, Tarsus’a 1800 m. uzaklıktaki Bentbaşı mevkiinde bulunan Berdan Nehri üzerindeki su değirmeni miline bağlanan transmisyon kayışıyla çevrilen 2 kW’lık bir dinamo kurdu. Burada üretilen elektrik kasabaya, yani Tarsus'a verildi. Buradaki tesis ileride daha gelişmiş bir hidroelektrik santraline dönüştü ve gücü 60 kW’a çıkartıldı. I. Dünya Savaşı’na kadar Tarsus sokakları ve bazı konutlar, Berdan Nehri üzerindeki bu ilk santralde üretilen elektrikle aydınlatıldı. Tarsus’ta, dolayısıyla Osmanlı ülkesinde ilk defa elektrikle aydınlanan konutlar Müftüzade Sadık Paşa ve Ramazanoğulları’ndan Sorgu Hâkimi Yakup Efendi’nin evleri oldu. 1905'ten itibaren Tarsus`ta bulunan diğer evlere de elektrik verilmeye başlandı, bu hizmet bizzat belediye tarafından yürütüldü. Zamanla santralin kapasitesi yeterli gelmediğinden, Avanye bendi üzerine yeni bir elektrik üretim tesisi daha kuruldu.

Title: Map of New South Wales, Containing the Districts of Port Jackson…
Artist: R.Penny
Date: c1820
Technique: Copper engraving hand coloured.

An early map extending from Wellington in the west, north to Seal Rocks and south to Jervis Bay. At lower left is a key noting the status of acreage allotted or available, also added are observations on the quality of the land. Acknowledged is a note on the recent explorations of Charles Throsby between 1817-1819 in which he explored the country west of Sutton Forest with Hamilton Hume and accompanied Surveyor-General James Meehan on a journey from the Cowpastures through Moss Vale to Bundanoon Creek and south-east to Jervis Bay. Throsby then reached the Shoalhaven River and Jervis Bay. In April 1819 he made a tour from the Cowpastures to Bathurst, opening up fertile country which much pleased Macquarie. In 1819 Throsby discovered a pass between the Illawarra and Robertson districts and successfully drove a herd of cattle through it.

Can you name #5WomenScientists? Throughout the month of March, Women’s History Month, The Franklin Institute will be highlighting the achievements of women scientists. For our final post in this series, we feature five women of The Franklin Institute. Swipe ➡️ to see all five.
.
Isobel Arthen, one of our science interpreters, works to serve as a bridge between the scientific community and the public, making the joy and wonder of science accessible to all. Her research interests include restoration ecology, wetland ecology and nutrient cycling.
.
Jayatri Das is The Franklin Institute’s Chief Bioscientist. She developed the science content behind our SportsZone and award-winning Your Brain exhibits. From evolution to nanotechnology, she is curious about how science affects our lives every day.
.
Raluca Ellis, The Franklin Institute’s Environmental Scientist, provides support for exhibits and programs that have an environmental science focus. Her biggest project right now is directing the Climate and Urban Systems Partnership (CUSP), a multi-city project focused on learning about climate change science and city-level responses to urban impacts of climate change.
.
Lucia Keim, shown here presenting The Institute’s popular Liquid Air Show, was our Head of Museum Demonstrations in the 1940s. Our Liquid Air Show, still presented most days at The Franklin Institute, was first presented in 1936. [Liquid Air Demonstration at The Franklin Institute | American | 1947 | The Franklin Institute, Philadelphia]
.
Alix Leszczynski, one of our science interpreters, is found throughout our museum developing and implementing demonstrations and activities designed to help our visitors understand science concepts. With a keen interest in the natural world, Alix also volunteers with our neighbors at The Academy of Natural Sciences in their malacology department studying mollusks.
.
As part of this effort to draw attention to the work of women in science, we invite you to discuss some of your favorite women scientists using the hashtag #5WomenScientists. This project is inspired by the National Museum of @womeninthearts#5WomenArtists project. • #Science #ScienceHistory #WomenInScience

My momma picked me up from school right before lunch so we could watch the eclipse & have a front porch picnic! It was so awesome! #SolarEclipse2017 #Eclipse #Science #ScienceHistory

Did everyone enjoy the eclipse yesterday? Data gathered from the eclipse will help us understand some of Einstein's theories, the same way discoveries from the 1919 eclipse catapulted Einstein to fame.

Alessandro Volta invented the voltaic pile in 1799, the 🌎's 1st battery. This led to the electrical decomposition of water + discovery of sodium, calcium, etc.

"Boy with a Propeller Beanie" 🚁

Fun fact: the propellor hat originated in 1947 in Michigan by (the myth, the legend) Ray Faraday Nelson. The then visorless cap became an icon for science fiction fans to identify themselves and a national trend.

🌕🌖🌗| #GreatSolarEclipse happens when the #moon #orbit between the #sun and #earth, casting a shadow on earth's surface. This is the first #totalsolareclipse visible in the #continentalUS in 38 years. it's been nearly 100 years since a #totaleclipse moved from coast to coast across our country. ******************************************************
🌘🌑🌒 | Did you know thelast time anyone in the #UnitedStates witnessed a Total #solareclipse was almost 40 years ago, on February 26, 1979. It’s been even longer...99 years...since a total #solar #eclipse crossed the country from the Pacific to the Atlantic. The total solar eclipse was on June 8, 1918, passing from Washington to Florida. ******************************************************
🌓🌔🌕 | On this memorable day, A 70-mile-wide path from Oregon to SouthCarolina, where the sun will be 100 percent covered. Other areas, including Ohio, will be witness a #partialeclipse. Cleveland, it starts Monday at 1:06pm and at 3:51pm. The #maximumeclipse occurs at 2:30pm ******************************************************
🇪🇬 | #Legends had been told where a #Plague of Darkness coated the land of #Egypt in total darkness lasting up to 3 days. In the year of 1926, the City of Cairo was subject to the same darkness, brought on by eclipse of the sun.
