    A NASA astronaut is accused of hacking her estranged spouse's bank account from space.

    Astronaut Anne McClain allegedly accessed the bank account of Summer Worden, while aboard the International Space Station this year, according to NBC affiliate KPRC in Houston.

    The two women are in a custody battle over a 6-year-old son who was conceived through in vitro fertilization and who was carried by a surrogate, Worden told KPRC. 

    The court battle has included allegations that Worden assaulted McClain. The allegations were eventually dropped, and Worden says the two have never had a physical altercation, KPRC reported.

    Then, earlier this year McClain allegedly accessed Worden's bank account while the astronaut was in space.

    Worden said her bank “did give evidence to my attorneys that she did access my bank accounts,” according to KPRC.

    An attorney representing McClain, Rusty Hardin, could not immediately be reached for comment.
