Currently, the closest known black hole to Earth is between 1600-24,000 light years away. Even if we do send a battery operated drone travelling at the speed of light, it would reach the black hole long after we are all dead. However, let's assume that NASA has some spare change and decides to go forward with such an endeavour and send a miniature spaceship with a filmmaker straight into the black hole's direction, so that future generations can study it more closely. What will the natural processes be as the filmmaker and his rusty drone approach the black hole or enters it (is this even possible without immediate implosion)? Will they both be just smashed like a layered blueberry pancake due to the high gravity as it approaches? Will the recorded footage be good enough to use for an episodic television re-boot proposal for the classic 80's TV show 'In Search Of'? And will years of this filmmaker's cinema studies, paranormal home invasions and pacific northwest Sasquatch (i.e. the creature) hunting expeditions be finally proven to have been worth the time ?? ?
