A) about how fast our galaxy is expanding, and moreover it is perhaps
Grammatically not wrong, however, logically we need "that" instead of "moreover".

(B) regarding the speed our galaxy expands at; moreover, they think it may be
two independent sentences joined by improper modifier.

(C) about how fast our galaxy expands and perhaps be
"expands" wrong action verb.

(D) on the galaxy’s expansion rate and perhaps
"data on" wrong idiom.

(E) about how fast our galaxy is expanding, and that it is perhaps
Seems Correct. "that" looks parallel.

IMO E.

Same reason. all others far away from being correct.

Idiom – data about

(A) about how fast our galaxy is expanding, and moreover it is perhaps [“it” can point to data or “galaxy”]
(B) regarding the speed our galaxy expands at; moreover, they think it may be [They has no clear referent – can points to Astronomers or clues; “;” incorrectly coordinates]

(C) about how fast our galaxy expands and perhaps be [ it may supply data perhaps be – awkward]
(D) on the galaxy’s expansion rate and perhaps [data about more idiomatic]
(E) about how fast our galaxy is expanding, and that it is perhaps [Hold – idiomatic and parallel]

E
