Artist and professor creates stunning man-made rainbow

Even if the state of Omaha in Nebraska receives average to below-average rainfall, the project can still operate for over 15 weeks. Sonia Renthlei: As kids, rainbows signified something magical, an etherealness that had to do with fairies and leprechauns waiting at the end of the rainbow with a pot of gold.

It doesn’t help that most sharks are slow-growing.
