Abstract: We report on Chandra ACIS-I observations of the Eagle Nebula containing the young Galactic cluster NGC 6611 and the dark columns called the “Pillars of Creation”. We find that NGC 6611 contains a rich collection of young X-ray emitting stars, but the EGGs at the edge of the pillars are not detected at levels below the Orion young stellar objects.
