E. coli to take the world

Algebra Level pending

If the Earth's estimated mass is equal to 6.0x10^27 g, how long does it take for a common E. coli with a generation time of 20 minutes to produce colonies having a total mass equal to that of the Earth in hours?

Generation time (G) = [time (t)]/[number of generations]

mass of E. coli cell = 1.0x10^-12 g
