羅賓·M·克納(英語:Robin M. Canup,1968年11月20日)是美國籍的天文物理學家。她於杜克大學取得理學學士的學位,並在科羅拉多大學波德分校取得博士學位。她主要的研究領域涉及行星和衛星的起源[1]。在2003年,她獲頒Harold C. Urey Prize[2]

克納為眾所周知的研究是基於巨大撞擊假說,並涉及有關建模測試,模擬行星實際上是如何的碰撞[3][4][5][6]。克納認為地球和月球形成於兩個行星結構體的大規模碰撞,每個個體都大於火星,並且是再碰撞才形成現在我們所謂的地球;而且再碰撞之後,包圍在地球附近的物質結合起來,形成了月球[7]。她寫了一本關於地球和月球起源的書[8]。克納還出版了描述冥王星冥衛一起源於巨大撞擊的研究[9]

克納也是有才能(學識淵博)的芭蕾舞者,並且在完成她的論文一週後,擔任博爾德芭蕾舞團維妮(Coppélia)劇中的主角[10]
