CoRoT-7 mutual inclinations

On the variation of orbital inclination of planets in the CoRoT-7 extrasolar planetary system

If the planetary orbits in CoRoT-7 are misaligned by more than 10 degrees, transit duration variations would be observable over the lifetime of the extended CoRoT mission. For comparison, the misalignment between the orbits of the Earth and Mercury is about 7 degrees.
