Another divorce is heating up hotter than a re-entry shield.
Former Air Force intelligence officer Summer Worden has been involved in a bitter divorce with astronaut Anne McClain.
According to the New York Times," Worden filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and NASA’s Office of Inspector General accusing her wife of assuming her identity and gaining improper access to her private financial records while orbiting the earth." www.nytimes.com...
McClain told the inspector general’s office that she was acting in routine by checking the family’s finances to make sure they had sufficient funds to pay bills for their son. According to the Times report, Worden had a son about a year before she met McClain. After the couple wed in 2014, she refused McClain’s request to adopt the child.

McClain took Worden to court in 2018 to get shared parenting rights after accusing the boy’s mother of having a temper and making poor financial decisions but Worden filed for divorce after now-pictures of her son and McClain were posted to her Twitter.
NASA officials told the Times that they were unaware of any previous crimes committed on the space station.
Strange, I do recall a mysterious hole that was found up in the ISS as well.
NASA is loosing altitude and will soon burn itself up.

Brings fresh meaning to "Space Opera."

I could think of an amusing title but I'll just save it for now heh. You can probably think of some on your own.

Domestic quarrels are the most prolific of things to cause a thing like this. Not a surprise.

Turns out the crime rate on the ISS is out of this world.
Maybe the Space Force should knock on the ISS door and serve her with a warrant.
After all, only a person with both feet firmly on the ground can understand the gravity of the situation.

I caught that too. Will the son become a non gendered person?

The closely guarded private life of a NASA astronaut burst into spotlight in a New York Times report Friday (Aug. 23) on a messy divorce battle involving American astronaut Anne McClain that has apparently led to claims of identity theft against the spaceflyer. The incident is rooted in a bitter separation with McClain's spouse, Summer Worden, the Times report continued. According to Worden, her bank account was accessed without her permission from a NASA-affiliated computer network, prompting her to file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. A family member also filed a complaint with NASA's internal Office of Inspector General. Before the separation, McClain had been helping to raise Worden's young son from a previous relationship. That role included providing financial support, the New York Times report stated, and her lawyer said that she accessed the bank account for that purpose and without knowing Worden had requested she no longer do so.
sad it got her outed if she didnt want that info public but seems mostly a misunderstanding over who gets what in a joint bank account .

That whole statement didn't make any sense. Worden complained that McClain accessed the account in order to provide money to Worden's son?! It doesn't sound like McClain is being honest about that.

There isn't enough money in the world for me to sit and listen to these two tell their sides of the story.

I feel sorry for the kid.

And the other astronauts who had to do the mission while that one was handling personal business.

Sounds more like a computer crime than a space crime.
The actual location (on the ISS) is incidental to the crime.

What is NASA's plan, to return her to face criminal charges?

According to the news, she is active duty US Army officer.

-- If she is prosecuted under appropriate jurisdiction criminal law
or
-- if no charges are filed.

Questions come to mind for subject matter experts.......

Will she be charged, under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) for Conduct Unbecoming a Commissioned Officer?

Will she be ultimately become eligible for a Dishonorable Discharge or a Bad Conduct Discharge?

Then, is she in violation of Bill Clinton's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" regulation for the practice of open homosexuality?

Yes, it is being blown out of proportion...

So, if I have a joint bank account and tell the bank that the other owner of that account is no longer allowed to access it is that all it takes? I understood the joint account must be cancelled first.

Could this problem, had never even appeared, if the quality of the personnel had been scrutinized, and not so liberal?
