Why is it cold in space?

Answer

It is generally cold in space because there is no medium to conduct heat emitted by the sun. Transfer of heat require a medium as heat is transferred by conduction, convection or radiation and since there is no medium in space to facilitate this transfer, space is cold and does not benefit from the sun's heat.
