Five F-1's, to be exact.

But you might want to stand back a little more than the 200 feet recommended in the safety code.:D

I believe the Space Shuttle SRB's have the equivalent of three 'O' motors at the top to insure ignition in a timely manner.

If they're F1's, they shouldn't need ignitor that large...They're only F impulse, by the way. Those must be some looooooong motors for F impulse, averaging 1 Newton. Can they even lift that thing? It looks huge!!! :D
