Space Cores, also known as Space Spheres or Spheriphem, are moonstone constructs native to the space above Nirn. Similar to Aetherial Fragments, Space Cores occasionally fall to Tamriel, although the experience is apparently unsettling for them. They will therefore attempt to cajole passing adventurers into helping them return to the void. They are seemingly sentient and possess a single eye. Space Cores can be used in Conjuration rituals.

- The canonicity of Space Cores can be debated, as they are actually a Portal 2 cameo featured in the mod Fall of the Space Core, Vol 1 for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Although officially endorsed by Bethesda, the mod was co-created by Valve. According to Cartrogriffi, a Community Content Manager at Bethesda, promotional items from other games are "sort of a category of their own" in terms of canonicity.[UOL 1]
