A NASA astronaut has committed perhaps the first ever crime in space by hacking into her former same-sex spouse’s bank account while on a mission aboard the International Space Station.
Summer Worden, the astronaut’s former partner is an ex-Air Force intelligence officer. Worden filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission claiming that NASA astronaut Anne McClain accessed her bank account while on a six-month mission aboard the ISS when she prepared for her role in NASA's first all-female spacewalk.
An investigation has been launched into what could be the first criminal allegation from space, according to a report by the New York Times.
A complaint was also submitted by Worden's parents who claim that McClain also carried out a "highly calculated and manipulative campaign" to gain custody of Worden's 6-year-old son after Worden filed for divorce last year.
“My client denies having done anything wrong. She was just monitoring Worden's account to make sure that the boy was well,” McClain's lawyer stated in response.
NASA investigators have been in touch with both women regarding the accusations.
