This mourning I was running on the beach like I do every mourning and stumbled upon a strange piece of rock. It is very light but metalic. How do I found out if it is space rock .

Where's the picture? I would compare to any others that are typically found already. I found an iron nugget that looked like a nut at first, but on closer inspection, realized it was iron, even though it wasn't heavy. I'm assuminng that it's hollow. Some volcanic rock looks like a meteor and I guess in some way could have been. These I've found smell like sulfer and are a bluish gray. I also have some I would like to have a geologist or whomever look at.

This is NOT a meteorite. Get the book "Rocks from space" by Norton. There is a list of real labs in the book. I can tell you that it's not a meteorite.

I'm placing my bets on obsidian, actually. The growth is wrong but the fracture might be right.

Here, check out the ID key in the middle of this webpage:

I've seen similar formations like this leftover from campfires. Parts of it remind me of clay or fired clay or a brick. I think it's earth based materials. Maybe it was from someones campfire on the beach.

99% are not according to a couple of sites. Checking with a magnet and heavy for it's size is another clue.

Check this website out mate, its a checklist and may be interesting.

Meteorite

Also try to contact NASA and see if they will send an anaylizer out to investigate. I do not see why they wouldn't so you can get an accurate assessement.

It's unlikely to be a meteorite, and I would not count on anyone coming out to look at it, but if you check the following links, there is a collector who might analyze it for you if you send him a sample:
