I cannot remember from wich magazine cover i've seen it.
It was some 4 years ago...
It was pictured in nasa markings on the cover.
Something like that...

Best regards

It's based on the reverse delta research, which demonstrated that you could achieve near laminar flow without any aids; i.e.-it was achieved by just the shape of the wing itself.
