Between the years 3500 and 4500, the magnetic field will not be sufficiently strong enough to ward off charged radiation from outer space.

Bayberry candles were highly prized, because so much labor and so many berries were needed to make just one candle.
    • sufficiently To a sufficient degree; to a degree that answers the purpose or gives satisfaction; adequately.
