Dunno about the whole era of science ending (!), but it's certainly a hard loss for those left behind.

Probably the most interesting theory of his that I vaguely understood is Hawking Radiation-- the idea that black holes slowly reciprocate (i.e. emit) the energy / matter they've previously consumed. This seems to mean that the eventual heat-death of the universe will one day lead to a completely uniform, motionless state. Because without Hawking Radiation, there'd still be pesky black holes scattered around like Nibbler's poop. (Futurama reference)

Of course, the impending Big Rip (look it up on WP) might render all of that... academic.
