Factual error: When a person goes out into space, their eyes wouldn't be sucked out, their cheeks puffed, etc. They would have about 10-20 seconds of useful consciousness, when they could get back to a safe area. Even after that, they'd still be alive for about a minute, although unconscious. The only major problem that being in space for about half a minute might cause is rupturing the eardrums and possible blindness (although the eyeballs wouldn't be graphically sucked out). NASA's studies on this go back as far as the 1960's and were used by Stanley Kubrick during the making of 2001: A Space Odyssey. (00:03:50 - 01:43:20)

Factual error: Throughout the movie, whenever the domes are breached (which happens much too often) it is said that there is only vacuum outside. But Mars has an atmosphere. Its thin and mostly CO2, but it's there.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: It's possible human colonization of the planet affected the atmosphere.

Factual error: When Quade drills through the hydraulic hose on Benny's mining machine, the pressure indicator on the console drops rapidly and is scaled in "Inches of Mercury Absolute". That scale is normally used only for vacuum, not high pressure hydraulics.
