do things fall off space?
do you know it then answer it

"Space is the boundless, three-dimensional extent in which objects and events occur and have relative position and direction."
falling out of space could probably mean being falling into some object due to gravity/etc , since many people consider space to be the empty part of the universe .
if you mean falling from the edge of the universe, then i am afraid there is no answer, at least not in the foreseeable future . one can only speculate on such things , for example , the concept of multiverse.

As long as you land on a rock such as the Moon or Mars, which has gravity, albeit light, you'll be ok. All matter has MASS, and the greater the mass, the greater the GRAVITY. Even Hydrogen, which is the lightest element, has mass.
On the Moons in our solar system, mass can be increased by filling CRATERS with water. These artificial ponds, lakes and streams will collect tons of micrometeorites that would add to the mass of a planet/moon. Growing anything that increases in MASS and VOLUME, such as watermelons, pumpkins, gourds, grapefruit, swedes, etc. will also increase mass over time. A forest of trees adds mass, hundreds of people throwing away eggshells and other waste products every day adds to the landfills, creating added mass. A large colony of lunar inhabitants gorging out on food adds mass. If just 1% of Earth's population migrated to space, there'd be enough emissions from human and animal activities to build atmospheres.
Space is the place to be if you want to indulge in a non-stop food fest. That's because the 2 primary byproducts of Aerobic Respiration are water vapor and CO2. Add methane gas to this and you now have 3 potent greenhouse gases which will build a rich and thick atmosphere for us over time. So the more we cook, and the more we eat, and the more active we are, the more water vapor, CO2 and methane gas we add to a planet's atmosphere, 24/7. Pretty soon, it'll be raining and flooding on all the other moons and planets also. This is assuming a "global" magnetic field has been put in place. We'd use a Fischer Tropsch reactor to make propane.
Bakeries, farms and restaurants are a definite must-have in space.

If an astronomical/cosmological sense, "fall" is meaningless.
It's a term of convenience we use to describe something moving into the gravity well of a more massive object.

no. Things can "fall" towards a gravity source within space, but they can't fall off of space.
I know it so I answered it.
