If an object floats in space, there must be some force acting on it according to Newton's First Law of Motion. What is that?

No force is required because force is required only when the momentum of the body has to change.
And, a/c to first law of motion the object will continue to float unless acted upon by an external force.
We hope this clarifies your doubt.
