Space is a layer appearing at the top of the world: ~950 feet and above for large worlds, ~700 for medium worlds, and ~425 for small worlds. Gravity is decreased in Space, which means the player can jump higher, and will fall slower, similar to the Featherfall Potion effect. The sky is dark and stars are visible, even when the Sun is still up. It has its own unique theme music.
Despite being at such high altitudes and having clear lack of oxygen, players that enter Space do not experience any consequences.
As with all high-altitude locations, Harpies will spawn, and in Hardmode, Wyverns. Fallen Stars spawn in this environment and can appear inside structures made at that altitude. Martian Probes have a more likely chance of spawning in space. Monsters such as Slimes and Zombies can also appear in Space, given a viable surface to spawn on.
