The Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO) is a 20 kilo-tons liquid scintillator detector currently under construction in southeast China. The primary goal of the experiment is to determine the mass hierarchy of the neutrino. By detecting the reactor antineutrino emitted by nuclear reactors located 53 km away and studying their oscillation pattern, the JUNO experiment will be able to resolve the mass hierarchy with a 3$\sigma$ sensitivity after 6 years of data taking.
