Title: Hypernuclear physics with ALICE at LHC

Abstract: Hypernucleus was first discovered in Warsaw. A historic prospective of its discovery will be presented. A short review of strangeness in particle physics will be followed by a brief discussion of the importance of the study of hypernuclei in varios fields of physics. The study of production of Hypertritium and Antihypertritium in the ALICE experiment will be presented. Its measured yield and lifetime will be compared with theoretical models and various results obtained with ALICE will be discussed.
