In considering the effects of lowering a wire 'into' a black hole, one must realize (as I'm sure you do) that it isn't really a hole, but rather a very small, incredibly dense object. Extreme densities can only be achieved by incredible levels of compression which actually eliminate the empty space within individual atoms, reducing matter to a neutral and relatively featureless plasma. Therefor, the hypothetical wire, upon contact, would be fused inseperably to the black hole and either pull the ship down with it, or snap at some critical point.
