hypothesis fall or stand

Can you please explain to me what the underlined parts mean?

A hypothesis stands or fall on the experiments that are carried out to test. It is therefore essential to do the right experiment in the right way.

    Is it "stands or falls" that you are asking about? In contexts like this one we can assume that "stands" means "is valid" or "is successful" and that "fails" means the opposite.
