The innermost heliosphere remains one of the last unexplored regions of the Sun-Solar System Connection. NASA recognizes the importance of a space mission, Solar Probe, to travel to the Sun's corona in a voyage of exploration, discovery, and deep understanding. As part of a recent Science and Technology Development Team activity, an efficient mission design and engineering spacecraft concept are proposed. This paper will describe the Solar Probe engineering concept.
