The idea is to block light in wavelengths outside of the visible part of the spectrum to protect the eyes. The window in the link I posted has > 90% transmittance in the visible part of the spectrum and I'm sure the copula's windows have similar characteristics so there's plenty of visible light coming in.

how can NASA slip up like this?
or have they forgotten that they said
that there is NO way to see stars in space?
proves you Can fool all the people all of the time.
So your saying if I am in space looking at the sun with 90% transmittance foil over my eyes I can make out stars around the sun.. our sun that luminosity is 400 trillion trillion watts
Oh my, NASA made such a silly error (or to be more precise, it was one of their blog editors, Sarah Loff). The photo is not of a sunrise, but of the Moon against the night sky. The Twitter post used as the source doesn't mention anything about a sunrise.
Hate to be the first one to have picked up on this.

I still wonder why the stars weren't visible from the photos taken from the moon.

The picture in the OP is taken with a wide aperture f1.4 lets in lots of light far more than the Moon shots, iso 8000 way more sensative than the film used on the Moon it's that simple.
