We all know it should be dark inside a room in order to be able to see the stars, but exactly how dark should it be on a spacecraft? Absolutely pitch black so nothing would be seen in the room? Or would a little light not matter much? Let's imagine the futuristic equivalent of the observation deck on a cruise ship, and picture a large passenger vessel that has a place on board where people can look out into space (unortunately I don't quite see it happening just yet, but I can dream, can't I? [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img]). Would there be any possibility for the passengers to see the stars? Perhaps with a similar arrangement as one finds in a zoo where the nocturnal animals are kept, with black or dark red lights maybe?
