Styrofoam coffee cups and wigs compressed

Styrofoam coffee cups (front row) were compressed after being carried 3,000 ft to the ocean bottom by the Johnson-Sea-Link II.  The three styrofoam wig heads were originally identical in size. The middle head was taken down to about 2,000 ft depth, and the head on the left was taken down to 3,000 ft.
