Going for A.

Don't like the usage of "will" and "as being" in C

Can not be A because 'spacecraft venture(S)...'

Between C & E, I like C better.

I might have agreed with A if it said "venture again" instead of "again venture."

Actually plural of spacecraft is spacecraft: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/spacecraft

That's something new I learned.

C because We are talking about something that's going to happen in future. Will is needed in this sentence

again modifies venture. adverb typically comes after verb. A and E eliminated. BCD left. C sounds best, but does anyone have an OA?

Aor B
Usually answer choices with "being" are incorrect.
Even though "again venture" in A sounds weird, I will still pick "A"

In Choice A the word"to be" is used which according to GMAT English is incorrect.

Again is an adverbe, and as such, it can be placed anywhere in the sentence (unless it separates clauses, hinders understanding, etc).

And as the rest of A seems just fine,

it's A.
