3 February 2020. In addition to excellent astrophysical research, the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) excels in the development of modern research infrastructure. This is possible in part thanks to the institute's own precision engineering workshop in the technical section. For many years, precision machinists have been trained there according to the principles of trade. The graduates Cornelius Lübke and Leander Leibnitz successfully completed their apprenticeship in January 2020 and tell of their experiences in an interview.
