Just sawWar of the Worlds. This thread isn’t about the movie; it’s about how to deal with the aliens in the movie.
Their tripod war machines have forcefields that prevent any form of missile, bullet or bomb from getting through, but there must be another way to disable them. For example, if a tripod steps in a pond, and you flash-froze the pond, the legs would be immobilized, right?
Perhaps making the ground slippery or unstable would bring the machines down. Solid objects can’t pierce the shields, but what about lasers, electricity or some kind of sonic weapon?
So: you are the President’s National Science Advisor – or better yet, an advisor to one of the field commanders. A tripod is coming towards you, and your first barrage has completely failed. What do you do?
