MSG 4 is a geostationary weather satellite, the fourth and last of Eumetsat's Meteosat Second Generation spacecraft made by Thales Alenia Space. The meteorological sentinel is the last in a breed of spin-stabilized satellites made in Europe, a popular design long used for many communications spacecraft until their replacement with more complicated, heavier three-axis stabilized platforms. MSG 4 will go into storage for two-and-a-half years before entering service when aging Meteosat birds are retired. Eumetsat expects MSG 4, which will be renamed Meteosat 11 in the coming months, to operate until at least two third-generation Meteosat platforms are in orbit in the early 2020s.
