It may be another fifteen years before spacecraft from Earth again venture to Mars, a planet now known to be cold, dry, and probably lifeless.
(A) again venture to Mars, a planet now known to be
(B) venture to Mars again, a planet now known for being
(C) will venture to Mars again, a planet now known as being
(D) venture again to Mars, a planet that is known now to be
(E) will again venture to Mars, a planet known now as being
Agree with E
"known as being"
"known to be"
are both correct idioms
The latter is much more common although the first is not wrong. This is an example of the first:

Could someone wise develop the importance of "again" and "now" locations in this one ?
Future seems to be not necessary here. I don't understand why... Is the use of "would" considered to be better in this case ?
