The Dirac-Milne cosmology [1] features a symmetric matter-antimatter universe,
which is the analog of the electron-hole system in a semiconductor, hence the reference to Dirac.
In this universe, matter and antimatter decouple gravitationally at $z \approx 10^{5}$,
avoiding annihilation at later epochs.
We recall the elements of concordance between our universe and the Dirac-Milne universe on the age,
SN1a luminosity distance, nucleosynthesis, Hubble constant z-dependence and,
very surprisingly, CMB angular scale.
We discuss the tensions on helium-3 production and BAO, as well as future tests of the
Dirac-Milne cosmology, notably in structure formation [2-4].
Finally, following Price, we provide arguments that the Dirac-Milne universe and
MOND (Modified Newtonian Dynamics) may be explained,
{\it within General Relativity}, by the vacuum polarisation as soon as negative
mass components exist (as virtual particles) in the vacuum.
