The support poles were made to place buildings on Mars safe.
There is 1 support pole to place a small building and 4 support poles needed to place a medium sized structure. Each pole has an anti-gravity finish so it can hang buildings upsidedown.
At the end of each poles are drills that are really 4 quarter pyrmids put together. When the drill goes down deep, the 4 flaps extend to hold on to the ground.
