We measure escape fractions, fesc, of ionizing radiation from galaxies in the Sphinx suite of cosmological radiation-hydrodynamical simulations of reionization, resolving haloes with $M_{\rm vir}\gtrsim 7.5 \times 10^7 \ {\rm {M}_{\odot }}$ with a minimum cell width of ≈10 pc. Our new and largest 20 co-moving Mpc wide volume contains tens of thousands of star-forming galaxies with halo masses up to a few times 1011 M⊙. The simulated galaxies agree well with observational constraints of the UV…
