Actually, the question of what stars are visible or not visible from space or even from the ISS is still IMO a very interesting question...
Check this vid out from about 18:20 mark... it compiles a whole bunch of different conflicting testimonies of astronauts regarding this question. Some say you can see stars, some say you can't, some say it black, some say its full of light, some say you can only see them in certain positions relative to sun, others say you see them all the time, etc etc etc
Hell, the Apollo astronauts themselves couldn't even 'recall' whether or not they saw stars even though they supposedly spent 3 days in the craft floating out to the moon and another 3 days back, when asked at the press conference they look to each other in befuddlement not being able to answer.
^ some of the answers are about what stars are seen from ISS, other clips talking about the moon... the vid-maker kind of throws them all together but keep watching from that 18:20 mark and the inconsistencies of both questions become disturbingly clear
