Corrected entry: Near the end when Matt is awake after launching the MAV, Commander Lewis mistakenly calls Mark Watley "Matt" when telling him the plans.
Corrected entry: When Mark is receiving the messages outside from Pathfinder, he uses a Sharpie or similar to write messages in his notebook. This is impossible, as in Mars' atmosphere and temperature, the ink should be boiled off or frozen.
Corrected entry: In several shots when Mark is grabbing the tether in space outside the Hermes, both of his palms are outstretched. He cut through one so he could use the air to propel himself towards Hermes, but air is not escaping from his hands.
Corrected entry: Johannson states that Mark Whatney's MAV was traveling at 741 m/s and his then altitude was 1350 meters. Then Commander Lewis states this is "too low." This must be too low, as at 741 m/s, he would have past 1350 meters in a little less than 2 seconds instead of the stated 12 minutes from launch to end of burn. This 1350 meters perhaps should have been 1350 km final altitude after the MAV finished its burn.
Corrected entry: After being rescued on Sol 561, Watney tells his crewmates he hasn't showered for "a year and a half." But the day he leaves the Hab, Sol 461, Watney steps out of what is the shower, naked and toweling off his wet body and hair. So it has only been 100 Sols since he last showered. Even in Earth time that's less than 4 months - nowhere near a year and a half.Aerinah
Corrected entry: After the Hab blows he gets in the rover, which should always be warm from the nuclear device. However it appears very cold and even shows his breath condensing.
