Re: Why are stars not visible in space?
People have already began questioning Felix Baumgartner's jump. One reason is because 'there are no visible stars'.

It will only take a couple of minutes to read. So, here's the link: [link to scienceray.com]

Draw your own conclusion from this...

Because of the infinite anti white properties from point A-Z.

Otherwise it'll be 'clear'.

Light reflecting from Earth.

What you need to realize with telescopes and cameras that in order for them to capture those awesome star pictures you see, is that they leave the mirror open for extended exposures, which gradually collect more and more light that the human eye cannot see.

These cameras used in the jump were set on low exposure times in order to capture still movement, not extended. If it was extended you would just see a giant blur, because the base was consistently moving.

You really just have to understand how photography works to understand capturing light. The whole scene is properly exposed to capture the immediate area of importance. Stars were not important.

Oh, and stars are generally visible in space, much more so considering there is no atmosphere to block'em out. + the dive was done during the day, not nighttime.

Re: Why are stars not visible in space?
As a television professional I can tell you this. Your eye can see much more contrast than even the best HD cameras made. When a camera exposure or iris is set to properly illuminate and highlight a given subject, the contrast prevents the lighter or more fine particles to get "squashed." G

Go outside at night and shoot the streetlight and see if you can still see the stars in your video... for that matter any planes or other lights. The camera cannot expose for both.

The camera was set to properly illuminate the jumper and the capsule he climbed out of. The reflection of the capsule as well as the light on the earth alone will prevent the camera from "seeing" any stars at the same time.

Simple video physics.

Dear reader, we need not draw our own conclusions, as one of the many like-minded posted replies to the article that OP presents, leaves us with no doubt as to why the article is unreliable....

Quote follows;


Michael I. Morgan Says...
On November 7, 2009 at 4:46 pm
The article above is, unfortunately, totally askew. The only thing relating to star viewing that is not experienced in “outer” (non-atmospheric) space is the twinkling effect, since the air is responsible for refracting starlight before it reaches the observer on the ground. Above the atmosphere, stars are not only visible, they are significantly brighter than when viewed from Earth. As for stars not appearing in “moon” photos, this is a matter of the camera exposure and/or the sensor being dominated or overwhelmed by a very large or intense light source, as in the Sun or – just perhaps – stage floodlamps.
I wonder who would be educated enough to use the scientific and technical language seen, yet produce such a potentially confusing conglomeration of false and inaccurate information.

LIGHT ITSELF DOES NOT TRAVEL THROUGH SPACE .

IN THE SPACE BETWEEN ATMOSPHERES ,THE PLACE WE WRONGLY BELIEVE IS AN EMPTY VACUUM ,THE WAVELENGTHS OF ELECTRO MAGNETIC FREQUENCIES OF LIGHT IS SPREAD OUT SO AS NOT TO BE VERY VISIBLE BUT THE CLOSER TO THE PLANETARY ATMOSPHERE IT COMPRESS'S IN THE ATOMS OF THE INERT FORMS OF MATTER,MAKING IT VISIBLE.THE STARS SHOULD BECOME LESS VISIBLE THE FARTHER AWAY FROM THE CORE OF THE PLANET.

You can also see them on the videos shown about the astronauts from the Moon, just hard to see because of the resolution of the camera used back then.

And anyway if all the stars lit up the sky and you could see them all through the atmosphere, the Sky would be a brilliant White Light!

Not dark anymore.

I actually think you're the "idiot" for not understanding how camera's work..
It's all very simple, spend a day with an SLR (non-digital) camera, then go develop the film yourself in a dark room.
The next day, learn from your mistakes with a digital camera.
It's how i learned.

Well,

The Hubble telescope is in space. It can see stars, distant galaxies and probably UFOs.

Re: Why are stars not visible in space?

Outside our atmosphere we cannot see stars. Remember footage of the Apollo missions? Did you notice that they aren’t any stars in the footage? You cannot see stars from the surface of the moon because of the lack of an atmosphere.
