Why are there never any stars in the pictures or videos of the moon? All I see is black space. That is nonsense. Anyone with any trace of common sense would know...
That this related to the "exposure latitude" of film. If you take a picture in bright sunlight, there is always little or no detail in the shadows. Try this for yourself: On a bright sunny day locate a concrete culvert that is in bright sunlight. Meter the concrete and then take a picture. When you look at the print, you will see absolutely NO DETAIL in the pipe. In fact, the inside of the pipe will probably be totally black.
The moon is very bright when the sun shines on it. The stars in the background aren't much brighter than you see them on earth. It would be impossible to expose a picture to carry detail of the lunar surface in sunlight and show the stars. Do you see stars in the daytime here on earth? Same reason. (Also light scattering in the atmosphere.)
Go ahead, read about "exposure latitude of film". Try the experiment yourself. Shoot, I bet you already have pitcures with no or little shadow detail; and, your pictures have never been exposed to such a wide exposure range as found on the moon in direct sunlight. When you "stop down" for bright sunlight, you just don't have enough light from the starts to show up on the film.
Good Lord, man, if NASA knew they'd have to hoax stars in the background they'd been smart enough to add them to the diarama. It wasn't a hoax.
How about reading up on that before jumping to short-sighted conclusions.
