You want to be inspired by things. You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great. That's what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It's about believing in the future and believing the future will be better than the past. And I can't think of anything more exciting than being out there among the stars.

Looks like they are running too many engines here.  Like four or five.  When the rocket returns it will be extremely light.  But on the way up it will be extremely heavy.  Unless those engines can be throttled very, very deeply, or you want to do hover tests with a full fuel load (why?), you wouldn't be hovering with that many engines running.
