The JUNO Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory, a 20 kton multi-purpose underground liquid scintillator detector, has been proposed and approved for realization in the south of China. In this work I describe first the broad physics capabilities of the experiment, which include the crucial measure of the neutrino mass hierarchy, the high precision determination of three oscillation parameters, and a rich astroparticle program. Then, I give the details of the mass hierarchy determination procedures and an outlook on the progress and schedule of the experiment.
