everything we've learned about the passage.
We aren't afraid, though.
We'll nix answer (D) first.
There aren't enough mentions of Gentry Lee for this to be an autobiography about him.
If choice (C) were true, then the passage wouldn't need to go into so much background.
You'd have to be the slackest NASA scientist of the crew to not already know about these missions.
We can get rid of (B) for basically the same reason as (C).
An academic article wouldn't need to give such a broad overview...
...and instead would be more likely to go into intense detail about a particular subject.
Choice (A) is the way to go.
It makes sense for the passage to have come from a newspaper...
...since it takes the time to educate us peons about the back story of NASA's mission.
