Ms McClain has since returned to Earth.

NASA is examining a claim that an astronaut improperly accessed the bank account of her estranged spouse from the International Space Station, The New York Times reported Friday - potentially the first criminal allegation from space.

Worden told the New York Times that the FTC had not yet responded to her identity theft claims, but that investigators were accessing her family's complaint to NASA.

That role included providing financial support, the New York Times report stated, and her lawyer said that she accessed the bank account for that goal and without knowing Worden had requested she no longer do so. After doing some further digging, the former Air Force intelligence officer accused McClain of breaking into her bank accounts while she was on board the ISS. A lawyer for McClain told the newspaper that the astronaut was merely tending the couple's still-connected finances.

Last week, McClain, who is back on terra firma, sat down for an under-oath interview with the inspector general, during which she was said to have admitted that she did access Worden's banking information. McClain shared official astronaut portraits that featured the child, taken in 2017, but removed them from the internet after Worden complained. McClain wanted to adopt him after the couple's wedding in 2014, but Worden refused; before the marriage dissolved, McClain requested parenting rights from a judge.

"She strenuously denies that she did anything improper", said her lawyer, Rusty Hardin, adding that Ms McClain was "totally co-operating". She was scheduled to perform a second extravehicular activity on 29 March with Christina Koch, which would have been the first all-female spacewalk but spacesuit sizing issues resulted in this EVA being cancelled.

However, Mark Sundahl, the director of the Global Space Law Center at Cleveland State University, said he was not aware of any previous allegation of a crime committed in space.

US, Russia, Europe, Japan and Canada who own the space station have an agreed respective legal framework that would apply to people and possessions in space.
