In this entertaining and illuminating program, CBC Radio’s Quirks & Quarks teamed up with the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo and assembled a panel of ten prominent physicists from around the world. Each panelist was asked to name the biggest question that science has, so far, been unable to answer. The arguments were made before a live audience at Glenn Gould Studio at the CBC Broadcasting Centre in Toronto.
