There is a spaceship situated orbitting a blackhole at x million miles. We have an exactly x milllion mile long string (perhaps a bit longer) Lets not call it a string, but a flexible steel cable instead. Now, we tie a metal ball at its one end, and project the ball towards the blackhole such that it goes straight to the so-called centre of the BH. Now, the ball enters the Event Horizon. Will we be able to pull the ball out of the hole? If we are able to pull the ball out, will its composition remain the same(it wont be spherical, im talking about its material)? The spaceship has infinite fuel, i.e. if it gets closer to the hole, it can increase orbital velocity.
