require("space.vec3") should work fine by itself using the all-in-one
loader if your module is and has both luaopen_space and
luaopen_space_vec3 functions exported. See the refman entry for
package.loaders for details.

It won't (on its own) load the space module though so you'll need to make
sure your luaopen_space_vec3 function requires the space module if it
needs it.
