This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The story begins with Mark Watney giving his first Log Entry. The film begins with the crew of the Ares 3 discovering the storm and aborting the mission.
   Mark explains everything with a lot of scientific detail. He glosses over most of it and we see him succeed a lot.
   Mark said the last thing he remembered before being hit by the dish, was Johanssen reaching out towards him. Watney was the last in the line and it was impossible to see him get hit by the dish. The crew knew he was hit because of their alarms letting them know.
   Mark removed the piece of antenna out of his body while outside. Mark left the piece of antenna in his stomach. It was still attached to the dish so he first had to cut the wire.
   Mark has a puncture wound from the piece of antenna. Mark has a small piece of antenna lodged in his stomach that he must extract as if it were a bullet.
