I'm not familiar with any complicated physics equation, however I do understand some basics. Suppose there is two objects, both of them are moving away from each other in a 3-dimensional space, which they both have the speed of half the speed of light ($c/2$). Relative to the reference frame of object A, object B would be moving away from itself equal to the speed of light.
A B <----- -----> -c/2 c/2 to a 3rd observer 0 c to A -c 0 to B
This seems to break the law of "nothing can move faster than the speed of light". I believe that there is some other explanation for this case. I have done some research, and there are quite a few questions on this topic. Take this one and this one for example. However, they are about adding velocities together, which isn't quite the same as in the case I was describing.
This question is also similar to my case, however the two objects described are both moving toward the same direction, and I'm not shooting any beam or laser toward the other object.
Most probably in reality there are some extremely complex laws and equations which makes this question more complicated. However, the two objects are not interacting with each other and I'm not trying to "detect" the speed of the other object in the reference frame of A or B. Also none of the objects are moving at a significant fraction of the speed of light relative to the third observer, so special relativity doesn't apply(?) I just could not think of any reason why wouldn't B be moving away from A in the speed faster than light.
A simple explanation would be great.
