Awesome Photo Of Africa From Outer Space


This awesome picture of Africa was taken by astronaut Sunita Williams. Besides the breathtaking beauty of the picture, it provides visible evidence as to why SA is the strongest economy in Africa. Look north towards countries like Egypt and Nigeria, with populations much larger than ours, and note how relatively little light is generated there. Perhaps Eskom is not that terrible after all?

It also shows just how developed Europe is by comparison, with little room for growth or expansion. Finally it shows me just how much potential and opportunity exists just north of our beautiful country.

What does it show you ?

    We are aslo going to contribute towards our sustainable “energy crises” by generating Natural power via our Spinning Mobile Studios that will work on the basis of you EARN (from spinning on a bike that generates your own energy to be reused in the evening for consumption) what you BURN!

    We are hopefully going to assist ESKOM with generating natural power until their Power Stations are up and running for the Informal Settlements.

    Thank you for your amazing insight into South Africas progression and I truely hope that those South Africans that are abroad will be returning soon after 2010.

    Thank you for your inspiration.

    I am one of the returned expat’s and this country is still an awesome place to be quirks and all!!!
    The grass is not greener somewhere else, you still have to earn a living, get older and hopefully spend time with family (which is a bit difficult if they are in a different country!)
    Chin up all you pessimists you can still complain about the weather!
