Kulagina's psychic abilities eventually led to a strain on her health culminating, in the late seventies, in a near fatal heart attack. Her doctors recommended that she reduce her activity, though she kept up some lab work until she died in 1990, around the time of the death of the Soviet Union itself. At her funeral, Soviets praised her as a ‘hero of Leningrad’ after her bravery during the nine-hundred-day siege of World War II. But many also lauded her for sacrifices of a different kind to her country, allowing scientists and doctors to examine and test her psychic abilities incessantly in their quest for an unknown and elusive energy. In the end this exhausted her, ruined her health, and probably hastened her death.
