It's about 300,000 times as long as a Mitochondrion
In other words, 579 milimeters is 308,000 times the length of a Mitochondrion, and the length of a Mitochondrion is 0.000003250 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.
