Hello Doda,
The question tells you to add the space character to encrypted text. In the code above you did it very literally and added ' ' to encrypted_text.
But you just made an if statement to check if char is the space character. Instead of adding a literal ' ' to encrypted_text isn’t there something else that holds the space char that you could add?
