Though arguably the OP's problem is an import issue, not really module

The OP cded into the new dir; I'd normally expect things to be found if the
module was a local file/dir. However...

I just ran the OP's download command:
wget -nd -nc -nv -e robots=off -l 1 -r -A hdf5 --content-disposition --header="API-Key: d522db2e1b33e36d3b365cc9ac1c2c5d" "http://www.illustris-project.org/api/Illustris-3/files/groupcat-135/?format=api"
This doesn't seem to download any Python code at all. It does get a couple of
HDF files, presumably with data to work with.
So the issue is initially that the module isn't present anywhere. Looking at
the instructions cited <http://www.illustris-project.org/data/docs/scripts/>,
they only cover fetching som data and working; they presume the software is
already present. I don't immediately see actual software installation
instructions, and it is not presented in PyPI.
Most like the OP will have to install the software directly from:
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/illustris/stris_pythonillustris_python
should produce an "illustris_python" in the current directory, and then her
import command will find it.
However, there are other prerequisites. This pip command:
pip install h5py numpy
seems to resolve them. The OP will need to use Python 2 because the module
seems to rely on a relative import (for its "util.py" file).
