1) Argument from authority is a logical fallacy.  If he isn't producing any
actual evidence, his claims are just claims, doesn't matter who he is.

2) Arguably, meteoric iron and moon dust (refined or not) are materials
"not of this earth".  Technically, one can make a case that vehicles made
with any non-zero amount of these materials are therefore "vehicles not of
this earth".

But mostly point 1.
