TRAPPIST-1 (Gillon et al. 2017) is an extremely compact planetary system: seven earth-sized planets orbit at distances lower than 0.07 AU around one of the smallest M-dwarf known in the close neighborhood of the Sun (with a mass of less than 0.09 $M_\odot$). With 3 planets within the classical habitable zone, this system represents an interesting observational target for future instruments such as the JWST (e.g. Barstow & Irwin 2016). As the planets are close-in, tidal interactions play a… Expand
