Maybe sidetracking, maybe not ...

These aliens bringing explosives. Our local discussion about a million martians turned into the question: Titan (the largest moon of Saturn) may be a more viable candidate for human settlement, because we can find lots of fuel there. Except we can't find oxygen to make it burn. It is useless to us.

Some of our explosives work because they carry their own oxygen in their chemical compounds. Those are "detonating", as opposed to exploding, devices. In an environment like that of Titan, with very little oxygen available, you would have to work hard to create detonating devices.

Black powder firecrackers depend on oxygen being available. We can probably conclude that Bob came neither from Mars nor Titan.

Any alien trying to attack / scare / impress us with explosives requriring oxygen should be met with enthusiasm: His world provides something essential to us! In fact, even detonators, carrying their own oxygen, show that there is oxygen available in the home environment of the alies, so we shouldn't reject them.
