Hi there.

The issue is in your condition statement.

What does

char == ' ' != char == ' '

mean?

According to the instruction, the condition should check if char is an empty space.

if char != ’ ':
print(‘space!’)

No.
char != ' ' meant char ISN’T an empty space.
What the instruction asked is opposite: check if char IS an empty space.
