Nope: "...not on the spacelanes where Realmspace, Krynnspace and Greyspace
can be found. ... Whether it is unreachable or merely so far...any journey
would take lifetimes is unknown ."  And then goes onto say Spelljamming is
unknown to the common inhabitents on Athas, though it might be a secret
locked in some Sourceror King's library.  (TCSH: page 13)

Personally I prefer the "Extremely Distant" approach.  (One could take the
Rifts view that there is some activity in space, but (Because they've
squandered the limited resources in the rest of the sphere and nearby
spheres just as much as on Athas) the spaceborn keep a close eye on the
planet, ready to strike hard at anyone or anything that might be so foolish
as to try and reach orbit...)
