I'd like to point out that the meteorite explanation has not been
"debunked", nor has it been proven that it was a rock from the parachute.

The falling object is still consistent with a meteorite. What's been
demonstrated is that the rock is very plausibly explained as something
trapped in the parachute, and given the odds against capturing an image
of a falling meteorite, that's by far the most likely possibility. But a
meteorite remains a possibility, although not a likely one.
