Silent and Efficient Supersonic Bi-Directional Flying Wing

Me neither. But, I don't know how they plan on rotating the aircraft 90 degrees. Also, it seems like any sort of maneuver to do so would feel really bizarre in the cabin.

A delta wing shape is efficient at high Mach, while a low wing sweep allows for greater weights and more stability in the critical phases of flight. The idea in the 60s-70s was to have variable geometry like the F-14, B-1, and the F-111. I see this as a different way to ineffectively solve the same problem.
