The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology – known better as the Penn Museum – needed to move its most famous object, a 3,000 year old Egyptian sphinx, from a gallery to the main hall as part of a renovation project. The move was only 300 feet, but the sphinx happens to weigh 12.5 tons, so it took three days to get from point A to point B. Plus: a regional minister in Pakistan livestreamed his news conference on social media… with the cat filter accidentally turned on.
