If aliens sent us the constant e, would we recognise it?

The constant e in decimal to 20 places is 2.71828 18284 59045 23536... sure, you spot that one without any trouble.

But what about --

In binary it is 10.101101111110000101010001011000101000101011101101001...

In ternary it is 2.20110112122110201101222210201102...

and in hex it is 2.B7E151628AED2...

Would you have spotted any of those ?
