A NASA astronaut is accused of committing the first crime in space after her estranged wife claimed to have stolen her identity and accessed her bank account without permission during a six-month mission to the International Space Station.
Former Air Kansas City Summer Worden intelligence officer is involved in a fierce divorce with astronaut Anne McClain in 2018, but the battle has flared after Worden filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and the NASA Inspector General, accusing his wife to accept her identity and gain unauthorized access to her private financial records while orbiting the earth, reports the New York Times.

Worden told the Times that she was cut short when McCain somehow had some knowledge of private spending mission without knowing otherwise.
She contacted her bank and was informed that her login credentials had been used on a computer registered with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
"I was pretty horrified that this would go so far. I knew it was wrong, "says Worden.
McClain denied the allegations, saying in an interview with the Inspector General in an interview last week that she acted routinely by checking the family's finances to make sure they had enough funds to pay their son's bills.

The child is also in dispute during the divorce.
According to a Times report, Worden had a son about a year before he met McClain. After the couple married in 2014, she denied McCain's request to adopt the child.
McClain took Worden to court in 2018 to obtain shared parental rights after accusing the boy's mother of self-control and making bad financial decisions, but Worden filed for divorce after photos of her son had already been deleted and McClain was posted on her Twitter.
A little later McClain embarks on a mission.
