support life

Hi,

A friend needed help with the translation of this expression into Turkish, "supporting life":

These planets are capable of supporting life.

I think it means those planets have the right conditions to form a life. So I translated it with that sense. Do you think it's correct?

Thank you,
Revi

    It means the planet had the conditions right to not only have life originate there but for it to be nurtured (supported) from that point on as well.
