299792458 m/s (2022) represents one of the most wonderful and universal phenomena. According to scientific data, the speed of light is 299792458 meters per second. The five-meter-long sculpture made of Murano glass is bent into the form of the numbers filled with neon and argon gas. As electricity flows through the brightly lit glass tubes, the miracle of light is explained as a suite of numbers rush up into the sky from the edge of the King Abdullah Financial District.
