On the topic of space mines just exploding, how useful would an exploding warhead be in a vacuum? For exploding mines to do damage, they require some kind of medium to transfer the kinetic energy of their explosion to the target. Just setting off a big kaboom in space gives someone a nice fireworks display unless the kaboom is actually in contact with its target.
