This question already has an answer here:
In the beginning of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Star-Lord walks around and has no trouble finding the Infinity Stone. Seconds later, the other Troopers arrive as well.
Why did no one before find it? Or search for it?
According to this question the Stones are searched for. But was one of them laying around like that particular stone?
Is there a plot about this in one of the comics?
