Interstellar Now! Missions to and Sample Returns from Nearby Interstellar Objects

This White Paper shows that missions to various interstellar objects (ISO) can be launched with existing or near-term technology in the near future. Such missions would generate in-situ data from bona fide extrasolar objects, the scientific value of which is difficult to overstate, without actually flying to other stellar systems.
