NASA probes 1st crime in space

WASHINGTON, D.C.: US space agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is investigating what may be the first crime committed in outer space, The New York Times reported. Astronaut Anne McClain is accused of identity theft and improperly accessing her estranged wife’s private financial records while on a six-month mission aboard the International Space Station, the Times said. The astronaut’s spouse Summer Worden filed a complaint earlier this year with the Federal Trade Commission after learning McClain had accessed her bank account without permission, while Worden’s family filed another with NASA’s Office of the Inspector General, according to the newspaper.
