On the positive side, we won't have to face the scorching summer heats.
I also don't agree on the international weapon policy of Namibia, completely agree with your points.
I would also like to add, One of the most challenging use of SC magnets is in the LHC particle accelerator . The niobium-titanium (Nb-Ti) magnets operate at 1.9 K to allow them to run safely at 8.3 T. Each magnet stores 7 MJ. In total the magnets store 10.4 GJ. Once or twice a day, as the protons are accelerated from 450 GeV to 7 TeV, the field of the superconducting bending magnets will be increased from 0.54 T to 8.3 T
