    Abstract: Over 4000 exoplanets have been confirmed and most of them are orbiting around low-mass stars. Due to strong tidal forces, terrestrial planets in the habitable zone of low-mass stars are likely in synchronous rotation or spin-orbit resonance orbits. These planets differ from Earth in three major aspects: the slow rotation rate, the uneven distribution of...
