I'm looking at it now.
I contacted DC and sourced the same video clip he used, to make sure we're "on the same page".
The trace is pretty awkward, as the camera is moving over multiple axes, latch-points for static point extraction don't stay in-frame for the entire trace period, and the object itself is pretty indistinct, precluding a fully automated trace (in other words, some manual repositioning. ew.).
However, it is fast. It's obviously falling "freely", so freefall would be no surprise at all.
Initial thoughts on probable (it does probably go) over-g...
I'd imagine there's a decent amount of force applied to that small piece by the rapidly expanding cloud of debris behind/above it. Don't see why that could not apply more than a nudge, over quite a long period of time.
I'll get as best a trace as I can and post it this evening (UK).
