  • Context. The tidal evolution of planets orbiting brown dwarfs (BDs) presents an interesting case study because BDs’ terrestrial planet forming region is located extremely close-in. In fact, the habitable zones of BDs range from roughly 0:001 to 0:03 AU and for the lowest-mass BDs are located interior to the Roche limit. Aims. In contrast with stars, BDs spin up as they age. Thus, the corotation distance moves inward. This has important implications for the tidal evolution of planets around BDs… CONTINUE READING
