Space and Outer Space are the same thing and both refer to an altitude beyond the Earth's sea level that is more than 100 km (62 miles).

Outer space is just what its name implies. It is the void that lies beyond the uppermost reaches of the atmosphere of Earth and between all other objects in the universe. Although it is a void, outer space may be thought of as an environment. Radiation and objects pass through it freely. Ref: http://quest.nasa.gov/space...
