Abstract: In this paper we review the modehng of the Local Bubble (LB) with special emphasis on the progress we have made since the last major conference "The Local Bubble and Beyond (I)" held in Garching in 1997. Since then new insight was gained into the possible origin of the LB, with a moving group crossing its volume during the last 1 0 - 1 5 Myr being most likely responsible for creating a local cavity filled with hot recombining gas. Numerical high resolution 3D simulations of a supernova driven inhomogeneous interstellar medium show that we can reproduce both the extension of the LB and the Ovi column density in absorption measured with FUSE for a LB age of 13.5 - 14.5 Myr. We further demonstrate that the LB evolves like an ordinary superbubble expanding into a density stratified medium by comparing analytical 2D Kompaneets solutions to Nal contours, representing the extension of the local cavity. These results suggest that LB blow-out into the Milky Way halo has occurred roughly 5 Myr ago.
