COMMENTS

The value describes the smaller of the internal angles in the triangle of the surfaces of the Tetrakis Hexahedron.
The value equals Pi/2 minus A156547, the 90degree complement to 41.81031... degrees.
The value is a little bit larger than the 4th root of 1/2, which is 0.8408964... = A228497.
If a ball assimilated to a point rolls without friction on a sphere starting from the top with zero initial velocity, this value is the angle in radians, measured at the center of the sphere, from the top of the sphere to the point at which the ball leaves the surface of the sphere.
