The Interstellar Probe mission would be designed to cross the solar wind termination shock and heliopause and make a significant penetration into interstellar space, thereby providing the first comprehensive in situ studies of the plasma, energetic particles, cosmic rays, fields, gas, and dust in the nearby Galaxy. We report on the scientific rationale and requirements for this mission, including its unique opportunities for cosmic ray studies.
