  Moviehole.net - The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (DVD)
That sums up the experience of seeing “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” — but only if you never read Douglas Adams’ popular book from which the film was based and/or you never listened to his 1978 BBC radio series from which the book was adapted.
Before they are ejected into deep space, Ford gives Arthur a guide to the galaxy with “Don’t Panic” on its cover, full of helpful tips on making your way through the universe.
Or better yet, read the book as numerous millions have done, and a galaxy of mice and men (not to mention the power of towels) becomes more meaningful.

 Scifilm -- Reviews, CANDY (1968)
CANDY was the most expensive and bombastic of a series of "psychedelic" movies released in the late 60s and early 70s.
Now on her own in the big city, Candy quickly encounters an apparent gang of Mafioso, a maniacal photographer (Enrico Salerno) who fancies her as his ultimate subject, a crude and violent hunchback (Charles Aznavour) who physically assaults her, and a pair of bumbling, fascist cops who are determined to arrest her.
This enlightened seer takes Candy under his wing with a line of mystical mumbo-jumbo, promising to help her find "the center of all breath" and teach her "The 7 stages of enlightenment" while still managing to get a grip on her luscious young body.

 CNN.com - Galactic collision leaves glowing scar - Oct. 25, 2002
A large galaxy absorbed a smaller companion and left behind a bright blue imprint in the heavens that stretches thousands of light-years across, according to astronomers.
When the galaxy Centaurus A tore apart and ate its diminutive neighbor, it sparked the formation of thick bands of young blue stars, which account for the strange cosmic feature.
In the case of Centaurus A, an ellipse or elongated galaxy 10 million light-years away, there are signs that it collided with another large galaxy before consuming its tiny neighbor.

 Galaxy Filament Detection using the Quality Candy Model
The three-dimensional distribution of galaxies in the today Universe is indeed characterised by a complex network of filamentary structures which delineates spherical regions of about 100 million light-years in diameter devoid of objects, suggesting a sponge-like or cell-like topology for the underlying matter density field.
The finite age of the Universe and the low enough peculiar velocity of galaxies imply that information about the initial conditions are preserved at such large spatial scales.
Characterising the properties of the galaxy clustering puts therefore strong constraints on the theoretical models for the formation of structures under the influence of gravity in an expanding Universe known to be dominated by dark matter and energy components.

 CNN.com - Chandra spies bursting galactic beauty - August 13, 2002
The galaxy, known as Centaurus A, is a color-packed assortment of arcs, jets and dust streaks, the result of a big burst millions of years ago.
In the portrait of the turbulent galaxy, two enormous arcs of gas at temperatures exceeding millions of degrees are part of a dust ring that extends 25,000 light-years in diameter.
And active galaxies like Centaurus A could have played a critical role in the evolution of galaxies in the early universe, when galaxies crashed into one another with much greater frequency, according to astronomers.

The Milky Way Galaxy is a huge collection of stars, dust and gas in the sky, it got its name from the white band of light that can be seen across the celestial sphere from Earth.
It is a spiral galaxy with a bulge.
Compared to the substance, size and purpose of The Milky Way Galaxy, the candy bar has no real importance to our Earth, it is not vital to our existence and discoveries but, the pleasure it can bring us when eating it can be great.

The first galaxy pictured is NGC 908, located 65 million light-years towards the constellation of Cetus (the Whale).
This spiral galaxy, discovered in 1786 by William Herschel, is a so-called starburst galaxy, that is, a galaxy undergoing a phase where it spawns stars at a frantic rate.
The galaxy, which is about 75 000 light-years long, also clearly presents uneven and thick spiral arms, the one on the left appearing to go upwards, forming a kind of ribbon.

I will definitely agree that a game based on a candy world can be designed so that both children and adults will find it fun.
As far as using candy as a selling point, you may initially turn away potential adult gamers just by the subject -- as Brian has already mentioned.
Within the game 'Cany Galaxy' there could be special elements included such as clever strategy puzzles, that only intellectual people could work out.

 What is a Galaxy, Anyway?
Galaxies range in size from a mere 1 million stars to 1 trillion stars.
This means that when a smaller galaxy gets too close to a larger galaxy, the larger galaxy "sucks" the smaller galaxy in and the two become one.
When all the stars of a galaxy are gone, that galaxy ceases to exist in space.

 Galaxy Quest (1999): Reviews
Nearly twenty years after their hit TV seriers was canceled, the five stars of "Galaxy Quest" are still in costume, making appearances at science fiction conventions for their legions of die-hard fans.
Fast, light and funny, Galaxy Quest has a wide, generation-spanning appeal--and you don't have to be a die-hard Trekkie to enjoy it.
The good-hearted Galaxy Quest delivers fun and confusion in equal measure, as it gently tweaks the fanaticism of "Star Trek"/"Star Wars" fans while validating it at the same time.

The galaxy, which is about 75 000 light-years long, also clearly presents uneven and thick spiral arms, the one on the left appearing to go upwards, forming a kind of ribbon.
The second galaxy featured constitutes another wonderful sight yet of a more timid nature: it does not belong to the NGC catalogue [2], like so many of its more famous brethren.

 NASA - Building a Better Guide to the Galaxy
The team will also study the dynamics of the disk and halo, measuring how quickly their stars obit the galactic center, how those speeds vary with distance from the center, and how the stars (including our sun) wander about as they orbit, in response to local gravitational influences.
Because our galaxy, like many others that astronomers have observed, appears to be spinning much too quickly.
These are streams of stars drawn out of their parent galaxies and clusters like pulled taffy, marking the trails of those disintegrating satellites as they orbit the Milky Way.

 Planet Quest: News Article
By measuring the proper motion (that is, the side-to-side motion as seen from Earth) of about 10,000 stars in the galaxy's central bulge, Majewski's team means to determine the Milky Way bar's shape, mass, rotational speed and history.
Current models insist that our galaxy should have as many as a thousand dwarf galaxies buzzing around it, each with from 0.01 percent to 10 percent as much mass as the Milky Way.
Especially revealing will be observations of the "tidal tails" that our galaxy's gravity appears to have been stripping away from the satellites.

 The Milky Way Galaxy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
As a galaxy, the Milky Way is actually a giant, as its mass is probably between 750 billion and one trillion solar masses, and its diameter is about 100,000 light years.
The Milky Way Galaxy belongs to the Local Group, a smaller group of 3 large and over 30 small galaxies, and is the second largest (after the Andromeda Galaxy M31) but perhaps the most massive member of this group.
M31, at about 2.9 million light years, is the nearest large galaxy, but a number of faint galaxies are much closer: Many of the dwarf Local Group members are satellites or companions of the Milky Way.

And if the latest saga in the Star Wars movie trilogy continues its box office streak, candy companies such as Favorite Brands International and Cap Candy are hoping the force will be with them, too, as they take their lucrative licensing tie-ins to the bank.
Sconza Candy Company was having great success placing orders for its new alien meteorites, a super-sour jawbreaker, while Sunco had a full line of alien-head candy and gumball machines to choose from.
But the candy galaxy also left room for millennium fever, with companies large and small offering everything from edible Y2K chocolate bugs to millennium chocolate coins.

 Science Question of the Week -- starburst galaxy -- May 12, 2006
A starburst galaxy is one which is undergoing a high rate of star formation, often ten times what is seen in our own Milky Way galaxy.
The starburst phase of a galaxy is short-lived in astronomical terms, perhaps only tens of millions of years.
During this wild outburst, however, these starburst galaxies provide a chance for astronomers to study stellar evolution in action.

Mint gets turned into a tree and everyone tries to turn into magical girls; Milfeulle loses her spaceship license and has to retrain under the tutelage of grizzled armed forces veteran "Rattlesnake," and everyone tries to lose enough weight to please the picky AI on their escape pod.
And as long as personal gain is involved, the Angel Brigade is, as always, willing to do anything, no matter how embarrassing—be it learning to do a proper magical-girl transformation sequence or skydiving in pig-suits (don't ask).
The usual clean opening and closing accompany two "secret concert" clips, one for the "Galaxy Bang Bang" opener with the main cast, and the other with Milfeulle's voice actress.

Swedish teen beauty queen Ewa Aulin is Candy, all breathy, wide-eyed innocence as a curvy blond kewpie doll--think Lolita, Barbarella, and Baby Spice all rolled into one--whose naiveté lands her in the sack with one dirty old man after another on a sexual odyssey.
The result is a sloppy all-star sex farce with blunt, misdirected attempts at social topicality buried in teasing peekaboo pinup photography and sexual romps, pleasing enough eye candy but hardly the erotic, satirical, transgressive portrait the picture promises.

 Binary King Galaxy
This is the only documented existence of a binary king galaxy in our known universe.
So although I know what a binary galaxy is (two galaxies orbiting each other), I have no idea what a 'binary king galaxy' is. (A google search pulls up nothing for the term.) I was able to find out that the Hubble space telescope has photographed binary galaxies.
Update: Thanks to Brian T. who found the original image, lacking the 'binary king galaxy,' on the Hubble website, thereby proving that the above image is a fake.
