If there is a spaceship hovering above a black hole so that it can get away, what would happen if the spaceship connected a rope to itself and dropped the rope in? Could you pull the rope out?

No amount of force can pull anything out of a black hole. Hopefully the rope will break, or you can release it, before your ship gets pulled in.
