E28. A balancing cube

A sculpture is in the form of a cube, one meter on a side, balancing unstably on one vertex. Let A be the bottom vertex (on the ground), B one of the three adjacent vertices, and C the vertex at the other end of the space diagonal of the cube from A. Assume the ground is a horizontal plane, and AC is perpendicular to to the ground. Find the distance from B to the ground, with answer in exact form.
