This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   While the Hermes crew saves him, Mark stays buckled and is in mental/physical distress from takeoff Mark is perched just inside the nose cone opening all excited and ready to go
   When Mark is on the Hermes, and he sees a crew mates reaction to his smell, he says something about smelling like a skunk shit on a dirty sock. As everyone is hugging him and whatnot, you hear a voice say "Oh a little stink" or something.
   The nose of the MAV covered with the super strong HAB canvas and sealed Mark uses what appears to be a parachute even though they call it HAB canvas and the HAB seems solid when they show it.
   Mitch is portrayed as a jerk that no one likes to work with Seems like an ok guy
   Annie Montrose seemed like a hard-as-nails, very outspoken woman who wasn't afraid of swearing like a truck-driver to make sure everyone in the room knew what she meant. She was like, eh, kinda there... not really that important. Usually when they showed her, she looked worried or like she was about to cry
