Interesting.... however a meteor would be traveling much much faster than that and it would most likely be in flames and explode on impact!

Still I am glad that no one was hurt!

you are right bitSeq, but this time Luis prefered to show clearly destruction effects not hidden by dust or smoke, and yes a Meteor fly very, very fast, but Luis idea's was to show the meteor on screen so he reduced it speed a lot, but the important thing is nobody hurt, luckily the station was on day-maintenance ;), more details about this disaster here:

My opinion is also that according to the distance of the camera, the meteor is extremely slow, also i miss fire and tons of debris. Although the destruction of the floor if very nice.
