[Reveal] Spoiler:
The idiom just as … so too is correct as written. Each of the other choices uses variations on an unidiomatic expression instead. The best answer is A.
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA

The clue here is in the middle of the sentence near "so too". When you scan the answer choices the first word of answer choice doesnt give you much. When you start focusing the end you would start nearing your answer.

(A) Just as the early NASA space explorers attempted on each flight to push the frontiers of our knowledge, so too
Correct. "As" compares two actions: 1) attempt to push and 2) seek to add to..

(B) The early NASA space explorers attempted on each flight to push the frontiers of our knowledge, and in the same way
Incorrect. Doesn't sound good.

(C) Like the case of the early NASA space explorers who attempted on each flight to push the frontiers of our knowledge, so too
Incorrect. Like is used here to compare actions (of NASA space explorers with private explorers). Wrong Idiom.

(D) As in the early NASA space explorers‟ attempts on each flight to push the frontiers of our knowledge, so too
Incorrect. "As in" is wrong idiom

(E) Similar to the early NASA space explorers attempted on each flight to push the frontiers of our knowledge, so too
Incorrect. "similar to .. explorers attempted" is wrong usage. It should have been "similar to.. explorers' attempts"

Answer: A

Just as X, so (too) Y is the correct idiom.
