In time like this, it's best to ask professor Michio Kaku (the dude knows pretty much everything) I'd pay him to lecture my courses...

It basically is the same as our moon people, floating around the sun. As for why its not in colour, they probably did that with radar, maybe I'm mixing it up with another planet but hasn't it got a really thick atmosphere?

You are thinking of Venus.

Mercury has almost no atmosphere at all. If it did, it wouldn't look anything like the moon (which also looks the way it does because it has essentially no atmosphere).

Also, not all moons look like our moon or mercury.

Light gives things color. Because light or white contains all the colors (black is not a color), anything can be any color. However, different things absorb different light waves (colored waves). The skin of a red apple rejects all other colors except red and some small areas of the apple absorb brown, yellow, orange, etc. making the apple look red. This satellite looks like it can only take black and white pictures. Most dead things turn grey like us...with the exception of some things like dead grass which turns from green to yellow to brown and then into sediment/dirt.
