In the Book In the Movie
   Watney drives the rover while in shorts and a t-shirt. He stays in his space suit.
   Watney goes into great detail about his efforts to bring the oxygenator and other equipment. These details are hardly mentioned.
   After Watney arrives at the Ares 4 MAV, he modifies it and makes additional fuel using his extra water and urine. Nothing about making more fuel for the MAV.
   Beck and Johanssen become lovers after extending the mission. This is not mentioned.
   After Vogel rigs the VAL door to explode he returns to the airlock in his space suit to assist Beck in retrieving Watney. Vogel remains in the control room.
