Could someone explain why when you see pictures of outerspace that are taken from above earths outer most atmosphere space always looks pitchblack with no stars in the background at all yet space is supposed to filled with billions of stars or are they only a few stars near the earth that we see from the ground ?

@readenterprises,
Read my immediate reaction is, you're dead wrong, you should see more stars not fewer
Maybe you can explain the circumstances of the viewing

You're right, Read, I googled a few moon shots and sure enough no stars. I suspect it's a matter of camera focus

@readenterprises,
Those pictures from outer space are faked. Stars are too hard to do with a green screen.

@maxdancona,
So then, if they're not faked using a green screen, how do they do it?

@InfraBlue,
These days, they have CGI.

Yeah, but what about the older, pre-CGI pictures, huh, huh?

@InfraBlue,
Check it out. Those pictures don't have stars in the background.

@maxdancona,
Yea Max, and I still maintain it might be simply a matter of focus

---or could it be reflected sunlight somehow desensitizes the camera

@readenterprises,
Don't know Read, just guessing but I'd suppose they might not show if they're not in focus

Can someone tell me if the earth spins on its axis
At the speed of approx 1000 miles an our and
We on the earth dont feel it because of gravity
Why when you see live video from video cameras
Like when they showed the space station repairs
Docking of shuttle to space station showing
Astronauts inside the shuttle looking outside at
The earth thru the wi.dow why does the earth always
rotAte so slow unlike when you spin a basketball
On your finger and look thru a videocamera
You still see the ball turning at high speed
why the earth doesnt and they are in space whenn
They video tape these events

Because, Rad, one rotation takes an entire day

@dalehileman,
can something spinning at 1000 miles be viewed as almost standing still or is this a video camera thing

@readenterprises,
The RATE is one revolution per DAY. The speed of 1000 miles per hour only occurs at the equator. The polar regions are much, much slower in terms of mph. You've just got to separate speed from revolutions.

I feel like an idiot for even answering this nonsense.

Because the stars are too dim to make an impression on the film. The astronomical photos you see that show billions of stars have long exposure times.
