When we say that something is travelling a certain speed, it's really travelling that speed relative to the Earth. When saying the speed of anything, it is, for the most part, relative to something else. That being said. If I have an object moving at half the speed of light, and another moving at just above half the speed of light in the opposite direction, would the second object be moving faster than the speed of light to the first one?
Note: I know this question is similar to some other questions like this one. However, with my limited physics knowledge (taking AP Physics class next year) I found the explanation a bit confusing. So, even though this might be a bit similar to other questions, I'm looking for a simpler explanation that could help me understand this and its foundation.
