Python Python Basics (Retired) Shopping List Lists and Strings

What is " Make another variable named name_list that holds your full name as a list, split on the spaces" referring to?

I don't know what the question wants me to do. The wording is confusing

full_name = "Orhan At"
name_list = [ Orhan, At]

Strings have a method called split.
You would use it like this, "some strings".split(). The python docs give some examples and explain how to use it.

Matthew isn't that a list closer?
