In the latest Bond movie, hovercrafts are used to “glide” across minefields without detonating the mines. Now, my understanding of both hovercrafts and mines is sketchy at best, but hovercrafts need to be supported somehow (don’t they do it by generating an air cushion?), and however they do it, they still push down with their entire weight, which should trigger the mines… or am I wrong?
I know, I shouldn’t look to Bond films for scientific knowledge. That’s why I look to you guys instead.
