Goofs
When the team is on the asteroid, the overhead studio lights are clearly reflected on the helmets.
Share this
Captain Martin wears a helmet that covers both of his ears. When he answers the phone, he holds the handset up to his cheek where he couldn't possibly hear the other party.

Although the asteroid Flora appears not to have an atmosphere, both billowing rocket smoke and liquid water are present, indicating air pressure. However, smoke shouldn't billow as shown in the movie when the rockets are used in the airless vacuum space.

Dr. Hans Halvorsen: But it proves out: this creature lives on energy, and discharges energy! That would explain its ability to electrocute Michaels! One cell, one microscopic speck left on a space suit, and it would absorb all the energy it could find.

General Jonathan B. Thompson: Well, this confirms my first guess. The only answer is to blast that thing out of the sky.
