Virdee is a physicist at Imperial College London and at CERN in Geneva, where he works on the Large Hadron Collider project. In conversation with AC Grayling he talked about the most powerful physics experiment ever built, and how he hopes to re-create the conditions just after the Big Bang and answer fundamental questions about the universe itself.

This autumn Wellcome Collection joined forces with the BBC World Service to host some of the biggest names in world science. AC Grayling, Professor of Philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London, discussed the social impacts of their discoveries and the frontiers of scientific knowledge.

You can listen to the Exchanges at the Frontier broadcasts on the BBC's World Service website.
