A 3D Map of the Adolescent Universe

3D map of the cosmic web at a distance of 10.8 billion years from Earth, generated from imprints of hydrogen gas observed in the spectrum of 24 background galaxies behind the volume. This is the first time that large-scale structures in such a distant part of the Universe have been directly mapped.
