Certainly no one from Earth.

And there wouldn't be much point, since the probe would be torn apart by gravitational force gradients before it crossed the event horizon, and even if it could somehow survive the crossing, it wouldn't be able to communicate from the inside of the black hole back to the outside universe.

As far as I know, not from earth.

To add onto the other answers,  even if this was attempted from someone on earth,  it would still be making its journey from Earth to said Black hole.  Even if we had something that could be sent that direction from the 1960s, when space exploration really started, and that craft was still traveling out, it'd still be very far from its destination.

No, black holes are too far away

Unlike in scuence FICTION, a spacecraft could not survive the forces of a black hole.   If they can crush stars and planets, what chance do you think a flimsy spacecraft would really have?

No. The spacecraft would spaghettify at the event horizon and never reach the interior of the black hole.
