While former astronaut Buzz Aldrin let the space-thriller "Gravity" get away with only a few visual nitpicks, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson wasn't going to be so generous. 

The 55-year-old, well-known for uncovering even the slightest misstep in Hollywood's interpretation of the heavens, took to Twitter yesterday evening and rained down a meteor shower of questions under the title "Mysteries of #Gravity." Before I post some of my favorites, do know that - like nearly everyone else that saw it - Tyson enjoyed the film. But, just like his quibble with the star field shown in the 1997 blockbuster "Titanic," if he sees something wrong, he just has to share it. 

After Tyson published a tweet wondering aloud why Sandra Bullock's character, a bio-medical engineer, would be performing repair work on the Hubble Space Telescope, the account @NASAWatch quickly fired back with some truth of its own. 
"Gravity," which earned the best October opening ever last weekend, is currently holding a 97% approval rating on RottenTomatoes. You can check out a trailer below.
