Use the 'Text to Columns' on the 'Data' tab.  Specify that the source data is 'Delimited' and specify a space as the delimiter.

Select the range and then use the Text to columns feature and choose space as the delimiter (separator) character
Just ensure that your data ends up in the right place

You need to select the cells in the same column you want to separate//split

It won't work by row
It is text to columns
Copy your data and transpose it so everything is in the same column
Then select the column with the data and use the Text to columns functionality
