I'm highly skeptical that Musk will build this thing as designed. But I think his push to make a fully reusable rocket with in-orbit refueling might actually add something useful to spaceflight technology for the first time since the 70s.

For those who haven't seen it, the awesome Atomic Rockets page has a great write-up on the SpaceX ITS' capabilities.
