Armageddon - Magical Space Dust
At one part of the movie, Harry picks up some dust from the asteroid and lets it sift through his fingers. As he does this the wind blows the dust away. The problem is that there is no air in space. Without air you can't have wind. Even if the small amount of gravity on the asteroid had a small atmosphere, these breezes would have caused more dust to blow around causing a pretty nasty dust storm.

Could be venting gas. More likely, however, is solar wind. Rays from the sun produce a wind-like effect (it's even mentioned early in the movie during the "what do we do about this asteroid" discussion). By way of example, a comet's tail doesn't point "behind" the point directly away from the sun because the solar wind is blasting debris off the comet.

The dust could have been blown by gas venting from a localised fissure on the asteroid, unlikely sure, but possible.

What? You mean this movie wasn't really shot in space? Was it shot here, on Earth?
