An astronaut is accused of improperly accessing her wife’s bank account in what could be the first allegation of a space crime.
According to the New York Times, astronaut Anne McClain admitted to NASA investigators she accessed an account belonging to Summer Worden while aboard the International Space Station.
She says she was monitoring the account to ensure the well-being of her wife’s son, whom the couple had been raising together.
McClain says she had Worden’s permission, and she used the same password to access the account as always.
Worden claims McClain committed identity theft, but admits she didn’t see any moved or spent funds.
Worden’s parents say McClain is conducting a campaign to try to gain custody of their daughter’s son.
