An American astronaut is at the centre of what could be the first crime in space after she admitted to accessing her estranged wifes bank account from the International Space Station.
Decorated NASA pilot Anne McClain, who was on a six-month mission aboard the ISS at the time of the incident, acknowledges accessing the account but denies any wrongdoing, according to a .
McClain insisted through a lawyer that she was merely shepherding the couples still-intertwined finances, the newspaper reported.
Her estranged wife, Summer Worden, a former Air Force intelligence officer living in Kansas, filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. Her family also lodged one with NASAs Office of Inspector General, accusing McClain of identity theft and improper access to Wordens private financial records.
