I can only find the Electron capacity for LEO and SSO: 300 and 200 kg

And for Venus: 15 kg (which links to here)

But what is the capacity for GTO, Moon and Mars?

  • LEO = Low Earht Orbit
  • SSO = Sun-Synchronous Orbit

    $\begingroup$ What is SSO? If it's "Single Stage to Orbit" then I'm not sure it applies? When you say "I can only find..." where did you find them? Why withhold the links? How do we know this is true? Where do 300 kg and 200 kg come from? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ sun-synchronous orbit maybe? $\endgroup$ Jan 20 at 3:20
  • $\begingroup$ They just wanted to tell I have to include a link so the question is more helpful to the reader $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I've added a reversible down vote to encourage you to clarify what SSO means $\endgroup$

I can't speak for GTO, but I'd imagine Mars transfer would be a little less, maybe ~10kg as the delta-V requirement is a little more. Also lunar transfer would be a bit more because of less delta-V requirements, possibly in the ~20kg range.
