The first video game about Space was released in 1971.

* Space flight, simulation
* Space station, location
* Spacecraft (also as location)
* Extraterrestrial

* Flat space
* Space friction
This should make identifying space strategy games, space flight, and other "in space" games much more easier from their earthbound kin in uniform manner.
