Mid-Term Report Summary - MUSICOS (MUSE Imaging of the Cosmic Web – Ultra-Deep Observations of Intergalactic and Circumgalactic Gas)

The MUSICOS ERC has been able to push the new MUSE instrument at the VLT to its limits, leading to the discovery of a population of faint and distant galaxies in the Hubble deep fields, and going beyond the limits of the spatial telescope. Giant halos of ionised Hydrogen gas has also been discover around distant galaxies and quasars, probing for the first time the environment of these galaxies. New technics have been developed to handle the new data set provided by the instrument and disseminate to the community.
