I choose D for the following reasons.

1. Only D and E expresses that it is the 'new Jumbo rocket' that will carry load...blah blah. Others seem to express that the 'development' is going to carry the load.
2. b/w D and E - D is visibly better at the end part of the sentence.

agree with D
Just to add that B and C make a faulty comparison b/w "lower cost" and "space shuttle"

Nice notice Paul.

D is the best to me.

I would like to know your opinion about E :
I am not surprised by the end of the senstence as to cost is more // than at lower cost but i have the feeling that "does" is missing

A newly developed jumbo rocket, which is expected to carry the United States into its next phase of space exploration, will be able to deliver a heavier load of instruments into orbit than the space shuttle DOES and to cost less.

Btw here cost is not a piece of the comparison between jumbo rocket and basic space shuttle.

One more question about "able to" : is it something we can use with non human things ot is it restricted to human beings ?

"Paul & venksune are able to crack gmat"
or
"Only water is able to save your crops"
