Factual error: When the first shuttle has crashed, you can see that one of the characters (I think it was Liv Tyler's fiancé) has torn gloves. Together with the issue of decompression, in space it is about -260 degrees celcius - he would lose his fingers and could even die.
Revealing mistake: When Ben Affleck riddles the shuttle's fuselage with the bullets from armadillo's gatling and then rams it to get outside, it can be seen that the side wall of the ship is paper thin. Now, I know titanium is a sturdy stuff but don't believe such a flimsy construction would be enough to stand the ordeal of a space flight with gravity loads during the start, escaping/entering the atmosphere and pressure difference in the vacuum of space.
Factual error: In the Paris meteor scene, the POV is from the walkway of Notre Dame cathedral, with a very famous gargoyle in the RH side of the frame. From that POV, the Eiffel tower is visible, but the L'Hôtel national des Invalides (Napoleon's Tomb, the gold-domed building in the foreground) is in the wrong location. To show both of those structures in those positions, Notre Dame would have be located about a mile southwest of its actual location.
