A NASA astronaut was accused of having committed the first crime in space after her alienated wife claimed she had stolen her identity and accessed her bank account without permission during a six-month mission aboard the International Space Station.

McClain denied these allegations and told the Inspector General's office in an interview last week that she routinely checked family finances to make sure they had sufficient funds to pay her son's bills.

A short time later, McClain went on a mission.
