Can I see more stars from space?

In my live video chat I was asked if you can see more stars if you go high enough above the Earth's atmosphere. This video is the answer (which turns out to be "no"). I have more details in my blog post: http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2008/07/20/can-i-see-more-stars-from-space/ The Orion image is from jpstanley's Flickr set: http://flickr.com/photos/jpstanley/2254460591/ The STIS image is from http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/1998/41/image/d/
