Asteroid Lander with EVA ramp deployed

This manned Asteroid Lander includes a hatch permitting explorers (in space suits) to exit the lander and explore the asteroid's airless, lunar-like surface. Given that the surface gravity is so low, in lieu of a ladder a simple ramp is deployed to assist the explorers with exiting and entering the lander.
