Its LOW. For it to land on its edge from 50cm it would have to land vertically. When it lands it would bounce a small amount so if it was anything less than 90 degrees to the surface it would fall over.

You do understand, don't you, that everything on that site is a JOKE!

There simply isn't enough information to make a more precise calculation- it depends on things like the precise texture of both edge and floor.
