It's about 40,000,000,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion.
In other words, 71 kilometers is 37,800,000,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.00000000002650 times that amount.
(Eukaryotic; average)
A mitochondrion measures between 0.75 and 3 micrometers (µm). The mitochondrion is commonly referred to as the powerhouse of the cell, responsible for the generation of ATP. The size, shape, and distribution of mitochondria varies widely, with human liver cells each having 1,000 to 2,000 mitochondria.
It's about 45,000,000,000,000 times as long as a Glucose Molecule.
In other words, the length of a Glucose Molecule is 0.0000000000000210 times 71 kilometers.
(C6H12O6, a.k.a. grape sugar) (open chain form)
