Actually it seems NASA has debunked it and they parachutists themselves admit it is a stone from the parachute, which I said from moment one.

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.
