Asteroid Lander EVA egress
In this speculative illustration a pair of explorers in space suits exit an Asteroid Lander in preparation for exploring the asteroid's surface. The surface gravity is so low that in terms of moving about the experience is more akin to exploring the floor of an ocean than the airless surface of a celestial body. The explorers' space suits include miniaturized manned maneuvering units to, i.e., tiny reaction control thrusters, to propel them across the asteroid's surface.
