A Pentagon report is warning that space trash is putting at risk the $250 billion market for television signals, phone connections, global-positioning navigation and other signals, reports Bloomberg News

The services are at risk from potential crashes between satellites and debris, ranging from refuse from old rockets to abandoned satellites and which are making space "increasingly congested and contested," according to the report, which was sent to Congress in March and not publicly released.

News of the report’s findings comes after a rogue satellite earlier this month threatened to disrupt cable-television transmission for networks such as The Weather Channel and BBC America.
