This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Mark sweeps the dirt off the solar panels and it is very difficult. He is only shown using compressed air to clean them once.
   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.
   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
   Watney has to carefully ration his carbon dioxide cartridges for his suits as he has a limited supply. This is not a concern.
   Mindy Park discovers the 2 pop tents Mark has set up for extra growing room on the satellite images. That is how she knows he is alive. Mark never uses the pop tents. Instead, Mindy sees that the Rover has been moved.
