That looks suspiciously like a file generated with Spec.  Enabling the
"SPEC"  (and/or "SpecFileLongLine") plugins in the Plugin registry doesn't
seem to work either.  I don't know why that doesn't work.

I am not an expert at dealing with spec files, but I was able to read this
file with PyMca, and with the larch Spec reader (which uses PyMca, and
requires it to be installed), using something like

  larch>  scan1_roi1 = read_specfile(FileName, scan=1, cntx='Energy',
csig='roi1', cmon='I0')

(and, indeed it looks like Zr XANES)   That's not exactly "open and read
with Athena", but hopefully it provides a clue....
