A spectroscopic survey with MOSAIC will enable the mapping of the IGM in the distant, young Universe

The bottom panel shows a slice of the IGM density field from the Horizon-AGN cosmological simulation. The field will be successfully reconstructed from the data of the survey, as illustrated by the top two panels.
