さ can replace the い of an い adjective to make a noun form of it. This noun form is used when talking about the degree to which something embodies that adjective.

Here's the entry for that さ

おいしい delicious おいしさ deliciousness
うつくしい beautiful うつくしさ beauty
おおきい big おおきさ "bigness" (or more naturally, size)

So すごい is no different
すごい awesome, great すごさ awesomeness, greatness
