Inherits from the Geom class. View the class hierarchy.

A space is a non-placeable geom that can contain other geoms. It is similar to the rigid body concept of the world except that it applies to collision instead of dynamics. Space objects improve the performance of collision detection. Without spaces, you might generate contacts in your simulation by calling the Collide method of the Geom class to get contact points for every single pair of geoms. This is computationally expensive if your environment has many objects. A better approach is to insert the geoms into a space and call the Collide of the Space class.
