Galaxies can be observed only with the use of the super-powerful Hubble Space Telescope. Through the lenses of the telescope, galaxies can be observed but far-flung galaxies are no longer visible with clarity from Earth. This has been informed by NASA officials. The farthest galaxy that the telescope has seen despite looking bent was named "the Dragon" because the warped shape looks like one.

Being aware of the NASA activity of guarding galaxies, a film was produced about guarding a galaxy in the Marvel universe titled "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" Peter Quill leads as Star-Lord. The title of the film truly refers to the Hubble Space Telescope as it is literally guarding and observing the galaxies.

On May 4, NASA released images of a galaxy cluster named Abell 370 according to Space. It contains hundreds of galactic neighbors fused together by their own gravitational pull. Amazingly, Abell 370 is 4 billion light-years away from the Cetus constellation (the Sea Monster). Watching from the Earth, the galaxies that lie behind the Abell 370 appear hazy and warped because of the gravitational lensing.

The Hubble Space Telescope was launched 26 years ago and has been providing the cosmos views that reach the Earth. "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2" although it is only fiction gives the viewers the idea of how the galaxies look. They can also appreciate the vastness of the created world.

EW reported that the film is expected to surpass the $150 million on its opening weekend. It was released yesterday May 5 but was released in the US on April 19, 2017. Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan and Dave Bautista, compose the cast.

"Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2" is directed by James Gunn. Its tough competitor at the box-office is "Fate of the Furious" which is on its third week. The film from the "Fast and Furious" franchise has already passed the $1 billion mark worldwide.
