The HDF data group relased HDF5 many years ago, it is a common data type for many science files.

Their recommendation for file extension is '.h5', and mimetype 'application/x-hdf5'.

See 'Recommendations' section for mime types from the HDF group here: https://www.hdfgroup.org/2018/06/citations-for-hdf-data-and-software/
