The U.S. Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is investigating what is believed to be the first crime in space, Astronaut Anne McClain was charged with stealing the identity and improperly accessing her ex-husband’s private financial records while on a six-month mission at the International Space Station (ISS), the NY Times said.

Her partner Summer Worden filed a complaint earlier this year with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) after finding out that McClain had access to her bank account without permission while the family filed another complaint with the NASA Inspector General’s Office, the newspaper said.

McClain’s lawyer said the astronaut had done nothing wrong and had access to bank records while on the ISS to monitor the couple’s joint financial situation, something he did throughout their relationship, the newspaper reported.

According to her, NASA investigators have contacted the two women.

McClain, who returned to Earth last June, is well-known for being selected for women’s historic space travel, but NASA canceled the plan last March following a lack of space clothing, sparking accusations of sexism.

Worden said the FTC did not respond to reports of identity theft, but an investigator specialized in criminal cases with NASA’s chief inspector’s office is looking into the allegations.
