It said that the sale of the two high rise office buildings in Johannesburg and Kimberley had raised just over R76 million. JOHANNESBURG - Eskom has announced the sale of two buildings to the Human Settlements Department which it said would help alleviate some university student accommodation pressures and assist in social housing. It said that the sale of the two high-rise office buildings in Johannesburg and Kimberley had raised just over R76 million. The embattled power utility said that it planned to raise R2 billion from the sale of non-core property. Eskom's Sikonathi Mantshantsha: "These properties were previously utilised as regional offices in Johannesburg and Kimberley and staff have been moved to other locations as part of Eskom's drive to optimise space and derive maximum value from its extensive property portfolio." Earlier this year, Eskom admitted that an incomplete housing project in Mpumalanga that ballooned to nearly over R1 billion over a decade was a great waste of taxpayers' money.

NASA Has Released a New Image of Mars' Blue Dunes and It's Quite a Sight - IGN Africa
Blue Dunes RPG when?
NASA has released a new image of Mars' blue dunes and it looks more like an alien planet from Mass Effect than one from our very own solar system. Despite the image being new to our eyes, it's actually quite an old photo. The image below was made using multiple photos captured by NASA's longest-working Mars spacecraft, the Mars Odyssey orbiter, in between December 2002 and November 2004. More specifically, it's an image created by combining multiple photos captured by the Odyssey's Thermal Emission Imaging System and while it might not be obvious when looking at it, the image below covers 19 miles of the Red Planet's landscape. Mars' Blue Dunes, Photo Credit: NASA "A sea of dark dunes, sculpted by the wind into long lines, surrounds Mars' northern polar cap and covers an area as big as Texas," NASA's post about the image reads. "In this false-color image, areas with cooler temperatures are recorded in bluer tints, while warmer features are depicted in yellows and oranges. Thus, the dark, sun-warmed dunes glow with a golden color." Despite the dunes not being actually blue as the image might suggest, it's still another great look at the landscape of Mars, which has been NASA's focus lately. NASA landed its latest Mars rover, Perseverance, on the Red Planet less than two months ago and one day later, NASA released the first images from Perseverance to the world. Because Perseverance is equipped with microphones, we now know what the surface of Mars sounds like too and spoilers, there's no heavy metal to be heard despite what Doom has led us to believe. NASA kept people talking about Mars by hiding a secret message on the parachute of Perseverance. Between that secret message, hearing the surface of Mars for the first time, and seeing its blue dunes, it's a great time to be someone interested in the Red Planet. Just in case that's not enough, NASA's first-ever Mars helicopter is scheduled to make its initial flight in two days, which will give everyone back on Earth a new 15-feet-up perspective of the planet Wesley LeBlanc is a freelance news writer, guide maker, and science guru for IGN.
