Question: [Would it be possible to] send a spacecraft into a black hole? – Cyrus
Answer: Yes, but if we were to do that we should make sure to use one of our least expensive spacecrafts! And there better not be any astronauts in the spacecraft. This is all because when something enters a black hole it can never come out. The spacecraft would be gobbled up by the black hole never to be seen from again.
