Do I need 2 Core sets to have enough obstacles to play correctly?
Or does 1 core set come with the required 6 obstacles?
Are there other sources for obstacles?

One core contains all the needed obstacles.

A single core set includes all 6 obstacles (1 space station, 2 debris fields, 3 asteroid fields). You can get acrylic versions from third party companies like Litko. There have also been some really cool 3D versions created by individuals using real rocks and other bits of plastic ships. I'm no where near that creative. And, those are hard to navigate around in an actual game. You can't really set your ship down on a giant plastic asteroid.

Core set has enough rocks (obstacles) to play with.

This is a very important point, 3d obstacles really do not work with this game (as cool as they might seem).

I occasionally use my Space Rocks set of 3D terrain (impossible to find anymore as they were rightfully sued into oblivion by FFG) and it works just fine. You use a clear acrylic overlay that goes over the flat cardboard obstacle. If a ship or squadron would need to use that space, you simply remove the overlay until it's clear again and then replace the overlay with the 3D elements. Easy peasy.

You can make them work if they have the base shaped as the originals and the support fit directly in the base.

So you can remove the 3d part at will changing them from 3d to 2d

I am trying to build some
