The only specific reference I can think of where space is called a no-mana
zone is NAGRL, where references are made both in shadowtalk and in the
discussion in the main text to astral space and magic. Basically, Astral
Space is only around the Earth. It's like the Force, being produced and
sustained by life; as you climb away from Earth and hit orbital
altitudes, it thins out. An ananolgy is made of a mage's physical body being
like a baloon; at normal altitudes there's enough mana to keep him 'preesurized'but at
higher levels his astral form sort of pops (and I may have the analogy
wrong, considering it's been 2 months since I've seen NAGRL).

Also, this 'life creates & sustains mana' is mentioned in the main rules.
