Well, if I could give a definite answer to your question, I would. <p> The last sentence of the Mine description says, 'Detonation of a <i>live</i> Mine can be prevented by capture but the capturing piece itself is exploded.'(Emphasis added.) This suggests to me that when you capture a Mine in space, it isn't 'live' and the capturing piece does not explode. But that's just a guess.
