Does light create a shadow in the vacuum of outer space like it does on the earth?
Shadows are caused by something BLOCKING the light. You can have shadows in space, if something is blocking the light. On Earth, shadows often look fuzzy; this is caused by the Sun's light being scattered in the air. In space, there is nothing to scatter the light, so shadows are sharp-edged and clear.

Why are meteorities a possible source of information regarding the orgin and composition of Earth?
Because they were made the same time as the Earth from the same materials. And, since they have basically been frozen in time in outer space, they can tell us a lot about the composition of the Earth. The materials on Earth are constantly being recycled and nothing remains from the birth of the Earth, so that is why we look to outer space and the meteorites that fall to Earth to give us clues to its origin.
What does the end of outer space look like?
As near as we can tell, space has no "end" in the conventional sense. This is similar to asking the question "What does the edge of the Earth look like?" The Earth is a sphere, and has no "edge" so you can walk around it forever and never find one. Consider the Earth. When standing on the Earth it seems flat and two dimensional, but if you point yourself in one direction and keep walking you will always end up back where you started. This is because the surface of the Earth is curved in to a sphere, a third dimension. Similarly, consider space. It appears to be three dimensional. But space is curved, it appears, in to a fourth dimension! This means that if you hopped in to a space ship, pointed it in to space, and kept going (for a very long time) you would eventually end up back here on Earth! This is why we say that space has no "end" to it.
